FAVORITE MUSIC GENRE Rap + Showtunes + Folk

FAVORITE LYRIC “When you get damned in the popular opinion; It’s just another damn of the damns you’re not giving.” — “Getting Ready to Get Down” by Josh Ritter

CAREER HIGH NOTE “The Qualtrics X4 Summit lineup showcased black excellence (both Oprah and President Obama spoke), so I worked with senior leadership to get MOSAIQ participants front row seats to the main stage event. While Provo currently has few people of color in positions of authority, seeing diverse world leaders reminds employees that success at the highest level is possible.”

MUSIC TO YOUR EARS “Don’t negotiate against yourself. Say what you want and then stop.”
