Describe your career, your platform, or what makes you you?

I am a champion of people first, and really strive to connect people with opportunities. I was given an opportunity early in my career and feel that as I elevate my job is to look back and pull those that come behind me up in their career progression. I am always using my platform to elevate others to be seen and ensuring that I am leaving all places and people better than I found them.

Do you have any habits or disciplines that you’ve developed that helps keep you motivated?

I have learned to understand my personal rhythms and times that I am the most productive. I know personally that I am the best at problem-solving when I am fresh in the morning, so I leverage that time for things that need extra attention or a time for a brain storm while I am working out. When I am feeling like I am having a problem finding a solution, I will get out in nature and call someone on my board of directors to problem solve. When all else fails, I listen to a podcast or an audiobook

What are you most proud of in your personal life and in your career?

I am most proud of always being able to adjust no matter what life has thrown at me. I have still managed to always find time for professional growth and progression no matter what the season is in my life.

We know from data that no one advances completely on their own. Relationships are often the difference between getting noticed and promoted and getting stuck. How do you identify key individuals with whom you need to build strategic relationships? Has UPWARD been a platform to helping you build these necessary relationships?

Your network is your net worth and the community I found in UPWARD has been amazing during the time that I have served as a Chapter Leader. I am very relationship-driven and I have made some pivots in my career in the last 12 months and when I looked to make a move I turned to my network, which opened the door to opportunity for me.

As an UPWARD Member, what experience(s) have been most beneficial for you?

The community I have found has been amazing, UPWARD is a network of phenomenal women who are all seeking growth and are like-minded.

What advice have you received that has helped drive you to where you are today? If you’re comfortable, please share where this advice came from.

We all have different strengths — do not be afraid to be authentically YOU, we all have different lived experiences and your lens and perspective matter.

What advice (2-3 things) would you share with others who have similar goals or is on a similar path as you?

1) Do not be afraid to advocate for yourself & ask for what you want

2) Always be thinking 3 levels ahead of where you are now

3) Negotiate power and not salary, the money will follow

Do you have a favorite inspirational/motivational quote that you’d like to share? 

“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.”

-Oprah Winfrey

When you’re not in “work mode”, attending calls/meetings, what would we find you doing?

You can find me traveling, engaging in good conversation, with my family or amongst friends.
