I’ve found a business culture that supports my talents and skills and for the gamesmanship it takes to be successful in this industry. We recently rebranded to Intrado and through this process, I have gotten the chance to influence culture and amplify the momentum of our value proposition and our ability to turn information to insight.

“If he’s not calling you, he’s calling someone else,” - My dad.
I always relate this back to business and the interactions we have with our customers and partners. It’s so important to nurture these relationships! If your customers aren’t calling you, it’s because they’re calling someone else to talk about their business.

What is a key tidbit you give to others?
Never ever buy a pair of heels you can’t run in!
Favorite vacation/getaway destination?
I love island hopping. The Caribbean is my ideal destination.
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
Water breathing (like Aquaman)! Underwater exploration is an eye-opening experience. I would love not to have all of that bulky equipment; I could explore the ocean deep unencumbered. Just think about all the shipwrecked treasure that awaits!
