I bring a diverse perspective to my work and my life. I’m an industry veteran with the spirit of a GenZ and the disruptive nature of a Millennial. I never turn down an invitation, but am happiest when I’m in bed before 10 pm. I was raised on a farm in the middle of nowhere and can handle a shotgun, but my closet is full of designer dresses and 4-inch heels. I am a study in contrasts.
