Current project: Professionally, building out a strategic alliance.  Personally, exploring motherhood.  Spiritually, on a quest to discover the meaning of life.  Recent recognition: Note from my mentor, encouraging me to honor who I am – a woman of talent, intellectual curiosity, and a deep commitment to making others’ lives better. Thank you, Anita!  Recent professional development: Proud to be accepted into Chief.  Latest contribution to others: Helping a co-worker achieve her dreams!  What’s been your big (or biggest) leap?

Personality profile: Compassionate, optimistic, a forever learner and a connector.  What one word would your closest friend use to describe you? Positive.  How do you define an ideal business relationship? Candor, openness and trust.  What is your greatest joy? Everything about my fiercely independent infant daughter, especially catching the exact moment she figures something out on her own (there are a lot of these proud moments).  What natural talent have you neglected? Drawing (it’s a running joke in my family that I was considering art school instead of finance.  But I was pretty good at one point!).  What is at the top of your bucket list? Hot Air Balloon Festival in Cappadocia.  What is your go-to workout? Peloton and OrangeTheory (and a good old fashioned walk around the neighborhood).

My father, for his outlook on life; my mother, for her resiliency.  What is your favorite app? Spotify.  From discovering new artists with my husband to enabling my daughter to fall asleep, this is a trusted app on my phone.  What is your go-to source of news and information? My husband.  What is your go-to source of creative inspiration? Walks amongst nature, especially by water.  What world event has had the greatest influence on your life? The latest pandemic.

What change would you like to see in the world? Genuine kindness.  What mega-trend most excites you? The metaverse.  What mega-trend most concerns you? The metaverse.

Who would you like to spend an evening with, in heaven? My dad.  Although an evening would turn into morning after catching up and watching movies together.  How would you choose to spend tomorrow, if you knew it was your last day on earth? Enjoying food and wine outdoors with family and friends, and of course, lots of laughter.  What advice would you give your younger self? It all works out.  What day in your life would you like to re-live? Introducing my daughter to my parents.

Personal mission: Encouraging others to live in the moment.  Personal motto: Now that I’m older and wiser, I know that “it’ll all work out.”  Favorite quote: “Success is not the key to happiness; happiness is the key to success” (Albert Schweitzer).
