I love “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.” – Fred Devito.
What is a key tidbit you give to others?
It’s important to always trust the process. Things don’t always work out how we think they should in the moment, but they always work out how they are supposed to. Everything really does happen for a reason.
Favorite vacation/getaway destination?
Being fortunate enough to live in Colorado and have the mountains as a beautiful back drop, I really find myself craving a beach right now. Once Covid settles down, I definitely see Mexico or Hawaii in our very near vacation future!
Do you have a goal outside of your career that you'd like to achieve?
With everything that has happened this past year, I’m grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to sit back and reflect. I find this has led to my goals outside of work being self-care focused. I’ve spent a ton of time getting into a health and fitness routine so one of my big goals for 2021 is to exceed 15,000 exercise minutes. I’ve learned that the more I take care of myself, the better I show up in all my relationships. I’m looking forward to crushing that goal this year.
