"Organizing an event to promote local restaurants recently was the most difficult because there were so many different people that needed to be coordinated and managed. Anticipating miscommunications and last minute hiccups allowed me to prevent those issues from arising. Sometimes they are unavoidable, and in those cases you must have a backup plan. Everything worked out seamlessly because I was calm and prepared."

"I am intentional about how I plan my work week and with how I spend my time at work. I usually spend my Sunday evenings and mornings structuring my week and confirming deadlines, meetings and luncheons. I also prioritize my time with the team. Our meetings are pretty structured, following an agenda and using time efficiently. I like to have fun with the team at work as well, but I typically keep my work hours focused on work so that I can have fun at happy hours after work."
