Key to Success: Invest time in people. Get to know your team members, clients, or other business leaders. You never know who may influence you in your career, or on the flip side, who you may influence.


Guilty Pleasure: Bravo & peanut M&Ms


First Job: I worked as a barista in a local coffee shop. I loved it & that is probably where my coffee addiction started!


Best Advice: Take the vacation! We live in an age where we are accessible via phone or email nearly 100% of the time. It’s okay, and necessary, to step away and reap the benefits of your hard work.


Biggest Influence Personally & Professionally: My mom worked in corporate America my entire childhood. I saw firsthand that women could have a successful career and a family but that it took a lot of hard work, dedication and support to get there.
