If you could give yourself a new title, what would it be?
Chief Spreader of Silliness

What is your favorite part of your job?
Finding opportunities to celebrate our team and the impact their contributions have toward making a safer world. I love understanding how people are wired and seeing them connected to work, volunteering, or activities that bring them joy and purpose.

Which is your favorite Dairyland cow?
The space cow (I’ve also been known to dress up our original cow for special Dairyland occasions)

When not working, what can we find you doing?
Spending time with people, studying for grad school, crafting, trying out new recipes, or finding beauty outdoors

What are you passionate about?
Pursuing and prompting emotional and relational wellbeing; making people feel seen and celebrated; cross-cultural learning; incorporating garlic into as many dishes as possible (within reason…I’m not going to make chocolate garlic pies or anything)

How do you Live Engaged?
By seeing every moment as an opportunity to be intentional. There are countless invitations each day to be kind, generous, compassionate, and pursue growth. I love learning and I feel a responsibility to apply what I learn, allowing it to inform how I relate to myself, other people, my work, and the environment around me. I also think that fun and silliness matter a lot; I try to make sure they don’t get sidelined.

How/where do you volunteer?
I volunteer with HOPE International, an organization offering micro-finance services and support to fight poverty, promote entrepreneurship, and invest in the dreams of families. I serve on their local board and also volunteer as other needs arise locally.
