foundation interest 1 interest 2

My work allows me to combine the foundation of HELPING PEOPLE and the interests of EDUCATION and TECHNOLOGY.


DAY IN AND DAY OUT

I manage a team with extremely diverse skill sets: project managers, writers, designers, editors, and front-end developers. My day consists of wearing different hats to relate to needs of my staff. I spend a lot of time meeting with my managers to help them work through any urgent client needs. I also help them prioritize the many projects that come across our team's plate. The thing I enjoy most is coaching people- whether a client issue or a team member's struggle, helping is what matters.

SKILLS, TRAINING, OR EXPERIENCE NEEDED

Clear concise communication, organization, ability to prioritize and re-prioritize, customer service, listening, problem-solving, and leadership skills.

SOME HELPFUL FIRST STEPS FOR SOMEONE IN HIGH SCHOOL

I was recently told to never set my gifts on the back burner. Wow - did that resonate with me. You should lead with your strengths and recognize and learn to utilize all of the talent around you.

HURDLES I OVERCAME

THE “NOISE” FROM MY FAMILY

“I was crazy and irresponsible for taking off after college to travel the U.S. I should get a job and put that college degree to use.”

HOW I OVERCAME THE “NOISE”

Definitely take chances and the time to figure out who you are and what you want to be. Remember your best moments happen when you are stretched thin.
