Where did you grow up?
In the Sonoran Desert of Arizona (Split my childhood between Paradise Valley & Scottsdale)
What is your proudest moment?
I moved to Colorado without any job prospects in sight or a single friend in the city. Now I can say I’ve built a life I love from scratch and also somehow managed to convince my entire immediate family to follow me! Work-wise, I was hired with just a handful of other media folks at my last agency. In my almost 3 years there, I was able to grow the media department to 4x+ the size without losing any members on my team.
Do you have any skills or talents that most people don’t know about?
You could say I get pretty competitive when playing Charades.
If you could be anywhere other than here, right this minute, where would you be?
New Zealand – Anywhere you can ski and lay on a tropical beach on the same day must be paradise.
Flashback to when you were 10 years old. What do you want to be when you grow up?
A magician, HAHA
Finish this sentence. On Sunday mornings, you can usually find me…
Somewhere off the grid! In the winter you can catch me on the slopes, and in the summers I’m usually waking up in a tent in the middle of nowhere and backpacking back to civilization.
How do you think your colleagues would describe you?
I think they’d describe me as a level-headed, hardworking, big picture thinker who strives to cultivate a supportive and open work environment!
What’s the most exciting thing on your bucket list?
See as many gorgeous places in the world as I can. I had just started training to hike Aconcagua in Argentina the year COVID hit 🙁 It’s been a dream of mine to climb one of the world’s Seven Summits, and I hope to be able to in the future.
What are you complimented on most in your work?
My adaptability, willingness to take on complicated problems and tackle them with creative solutions, but mostly my openness around communicating positive and negative feedback with members of my team.
