How did you discover your passion for what you do?

The idea of “to whom much is given, much will be required” is that we are held responsible for what we have. My faith has taught me a lot, and my passion for my work comes from understanding my blessings. I always believe that I’ve been given opportunities and, with those, I’ve chosen a path to deeply care for the world around me.


How do you continue to grow and be a lifelong learner?

If something is challenging or makes me a little afraid, I lean right in because that is where the growth happens. Go make yourself uncomfortable, go challenge yourself, go do things that scare you, and you will grow. Connecting. The power of human connection. You can learn so much by listening and getting out from behind your screen and connecting with other humans.


What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?

Going to the lake. Being outside in nature. Live music. Spending quality time with family and friends. Giving back to my community. Staying active. Learning something new every day. Spiritual growth. Travel.
