PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT Starting my first business at 33 years old, which achieved 11,400% growth in 4 years! LEADERSHIP STYLE I lead by example, giving employees the opportunity to grow through experience. I take a step back and don’t micromanage. I have seen this help shape employees’ thinking processes and lead them to success. WOULDA-COULDA-SHOULDA Nothing. Every challenge, opportunity, and milestone has brought me to where I am today. WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH I am most successful when my approach begins with a clear head. This enables me to focus specifically on the issues at hand while not being distracted by other pressing tasks. MAIN MOTIVATION My family. They are my “why” for everything I do. My other big motivator is knowing that opportunities are endless if you work hard enough and build a strong professional network. ULTIMATE CAREER DREAM To build innovative companies strong in culture and values — and where employees know they are appreciated, respected and can be creative.
