What do you love about your job?

The two things I love the most is the fact that I get to truly utilize my skill set to strategically build relationships, businesses and programs and that I also get to work with amazing and unique individuals from all walks of life internally and externally. Sometimes I’m lucky enough to call these people friends. 

It’s not always rainbows and unicorns but how boring would that be?

What do you like about working with TBI?

2019 will be exciting!  It's actually the first year I'll have the opportunity to work with TBI, and I’m looking forward to it!

Favorite Quote: 

"It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case, you fail by default.”  - JK Rowling

What is a key tidbit you give to others? 

Never judge a book (or person) by their title. There are multiple layers that make up every human being;  greatness is not always in the first layer.

Take the time - relationships are everything.

Favorite vacation/getaway destination? 

At home poolside with my two rescue pups, Sampson and Vinny. There’s nothing better than being able to relax at home with the sun on your face and two little heartbeats at your feet, especially when you travel so often for work.

If you could have any superpower what would it be?

To be a mind reader.
