Question: Let’s hear about your background – what school did you go to and what’s your career been so far?
Answer: I went to school at the College of St. Benedict. After that I took some time off and then made my way into the jewelry industry. It was super fun and exciting because I was working day-to-day with high-end luxury items. During that time, I had a wonderful mentor who encouraged me to transition into the technology industry. I started with a value-added re-seller and was selling everything from routers, servers and computers. From there, I got in the executive search business and focused in the emerging growths market. And now today, I’m here with True Talent Group!
Question: What have you done in 2020 that you’ve found valuable and enjoyable?
Answer: I spent a lot of time with my mother during her last few months on earth. She was a very inspirational woman and spending time with her was a true gift for both me and my daughter. We spent lots of time laughing, reading poetry and having great discussions.
Question: What do you like to do in your free time?
Answer: In my free time I love attending my 14-year-old daughter’s sporting events. She plays volleyball right now and most recently made the switch from ice skating to hockey. I spend a lot of time in arenas! I love anything outside – like bike riding, walking and working out. Netflix shows are great! Spending time with friends is important to me (when it’s safe to see one another) and I love to laugh!
