"Early in my career, I had the opportunity to work closely with the CEO of a fast-paced organization. We ran very cleanly, financially, and I gained exposure to a wide variety of the business practices which helped shaped who I am as a professional administrator."
"I aim to always act like a partner to any business I support. This methodology is something that drives my leadership style. I am passionate about making the right choices, to lead by example, coach others on ways to improve in a gentle fashion, and be a resource for anyone that should need help."

In high school, I was the captain of the tennis team, so I've truly always been a leader. I have carried that over into my adult life."
"I feel I have been a leader as long as I can remember- it's something innate in me.

Throughout life, both in school and professionally, I have never wanted to disappoint. I will take on more than my fair share of the workload to get it done on time and in the best way possible."
"I was raised to be a headstrong individual, and my household always encouraged independence. I know this shaped me as a professional who can take the lead in a project, or run a group of students without issue."
