MOTTO

Wake up every day with a smile.

I went through a unique graduate program that allowed me two achieve two major life goals: earn my Masters Degree (two, in fact!) while traveling the world. To date, I’ve traveled to nearly 40 countries, and I forever cherish the cultural experience I’ve gained in my adventures.

I love the outdoors, and over the last few years, I’ve come to have a special appreciation for snorkeling and diving in the beautiful waters of our lovely state of Florida.

ANSWER THE QUESTIONS

What are you happiest doing, when you’re not working?

I love being in the water, whether that’s at the beach, or snorkeling the beautiful Florida Springs, or SCUBA diving in the ocean.

What would you do even if you didn’t get paid to do it?

Thrifting! I love finding thrift shops, consignment shops or garage sales and discovering hidden treasures.

How does your education connect to your professional career? What about personal experiences?

I completed a graduate program that was 75% abroad across Germany, China and Poland. Much of the degree was focused on research towards our Master’s Thesis, which involved a multicultural team. I learned a lot about working with a group of people from vastly different cultures, and through that, I improved my ability to work in a team setting.

At which store would you like to max-out your credit card?

ASOS. It’s my weakness.

Would you rather have unlimited sushi for life or unlimited tacos for life?

This is an incredibly difficult question, but you had me at taco!
