Operations is most valuable when working proactively.

We’re not just here to respond to requests, we are always learning, getting ahead of challenges, evolving our tools, and seeking improvements to help us hit our strategic goals. I love that there are always new challenges to overcome. 

The best work comes from original minds coming together.

I like finding opportunities to bring unexpected people together to execute on things jointly. You build trust, catalyze creativity, and the results are usually pretty impressive. 

Small talk cheat sheet:

Winding career paths, 90s music, painting, camping, gardening, funny product ideas — where can I get a shirt with 100s of buttons, or a massive dispenser of dental floss? 

My enneagram is a Type 2 (Helper) and Type 3 (Achiever).

Put simply: I love fulfilling work and making work fulfilling for others.
