What do you love about your job?In short - everything! I love that I work with talented, motivated, and team-oriented individuals at an innovative and rapidly growing company. Additionally, I enjoy working with the Master Agents and partners I’ve known for years to grow our strategic partnerships here at Dialpad.

“Achievement happens when we pursue and attain what we want. Success comes when we are in clear pursuit of why we want it.” - Simon Sinek
What is a key tidbit you give to others?
I’ll pass along the best career advice I’ve received: “I have never accepted a job I knew with 100% certainty that I could do.”
Favorite vacation/getaway destination?
I have a few favorites, but I went to Grindewald, Switzerland a few years ago and absolutely loved waking up to the mountains every morning. I even had the opportunity to sneak away to Interlaken one day to go skydiving over the Swiss Alps.
Do you have a goal outside of your career that you'd like to achieve?
I was taking one of Alex Toussaint’s classes on the Peloton recently and he said, “You can’t pour from an empty cup.” It really resonated with me! My goal outside of my career right now is to find a balance with everything else that matters to me: family/friends, my health, and traveling and experiencing new cultures. I’m striving to always keep in mind that my cup needs to be full if I want to support others.
