Family: I grew up in a big family of eight, with me being the third among six siblings, if you want to count the one minute my twin sister has over me.

Outside of work, I love... to spend time with my dobie pup named Dobie, my friends, live music, paddle boarding, and learning about different cultures through traveling. 

My workplace superpower is... my compassion and understanding, which allow me to connect with others, fostering an environment of empathy and collaboration that drives positive outcomes.
