BEGINNING INTERESTS 

I’ve always liked puzzles or solving a problem, that’s what I get to do every day – finding ways through technology or a conversation to solve a problem.

CAREER EVOLUTION  

There are so many things that fall into a STEAM career. You don’t have to be a software developer to know how technology can make your job easier. I’ve written the job descriptions for the last three positions I’ve held. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, create your own path. 

LOVE THE WORK 

What I love most about my job is the privilege of being a catalyst for change – bringing people together, aligning interests and mobilizing resources to create tangible results. Whether it’s launching innovative products and services that meet the evolving needs of our customers or championing initiatives that promote financial literacy and empowerment in our communities, I find fulfillment in knowing that our collective efforts are making a difference in people’s lives.

ADVICE

One of my mentors once told me – your job doesn’t define who you are as a person. Be open to opportunities that might not be on your path as you’ve defined it. A career is not a straight path – there are many twists and turns along the way – embrace the journey.
