Favorite Quote: 

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” -Maya Angelou

My daughters studied butterflies this year in kindergarten and reminded me that caterpillars turn to mush before they become what they’re meant to be.

What is a key tidbit you give to others? 

It’s ok to be vulnerable and ask for help or advice. That’s always been difficult for me, but I’ve been much more open to asking for guidance lately. I’ve reached out to people (both in and out of the channel) and the insight and perspective I’ve received has been invaluable. And most people like being asked for advice and are very generous sharing their time and experience.

Favorite vacation/getaway destination? 

Anywhere warm, quiet, near the water, with a good book.

Do you have a goal outside of your career that you'd like to achieve?

I’d like to become more financially savvy.
