I am a self-professed nerd: I love Harry Potter, Star Wars, Marvel, books, and board games. After a few meetings with me, you will notice my affinity for wearing all black. It is partly an homage to Darth Vader and mostly because it is easy. Steve Jobs did it, so can I.
I started my career as a preschool teacher and they taught me that you can have a solid plan and someone will end up barfing all over that plan. When I moved to high school students, I saw how much they craved attention and acceptance while also craving independence and the ability to figure things out on their own. And now that I work with businesses and adults, I turn to these lessons every day.
I originally joined the People Centric team because I thought that my strategic organizational skills could help them build the company. Admittedly, I was skeptical about their philosophy on people and culture. But I have since discovered that we really are on to something. I love our systematic approach to creating high performance cultures and companies in which employees are aligned an empowered. Our work has had a profound impact on me as I get to watch people create change, grow, and develop others. I think our approach has ripple effects, not only through the companies in which we are working, but also within the communities and families of those employees. It’s awesome and I love it.
