Favorite part of CREW, or why did you join?
There are many aspects of CREW I love such as the quality and experience of the membership base and the networking opportunities, but above all, I love the sense of community among its members. I have built true friendships as well as invaluable professional relationships as a member. The organization fosters an environment of collaboration and encourages its members to share in the successes of my peers. Serving as a co-chair of a committee has also created opportunities to work with others closely toward a common goal and to fine tune my leadership skills.
What do you like to do in your spare time? Hobbies?
Travel, travel, travel! Whether close by or far away, I love to explore new places and expose my kids to varied experiences (in the future, I would love to help others plan amazing adventures). I also love sports and many music genres, so attending all kinds of events and concerts is a definite go-to activity for me. As a lifelong opera fan, one of my bucket list items mixes music and travel – I would love to attend the Bayreuther Festspiele in Germany one day.
What keeps you motivated?
My kids keep me motivated. They have natural curiosity that inspires me to learn and grow daily, and the need to keep up with them gives me the energy. I also try to keep myself moving by focusing on and enjoying my small successes instead of solely on the goals I have yet to achieve. Gratitude has been a great motivator to get the most from each day.
Other boards you’re involved with, include any charitable or philanthropic associations.
I sit on the board of WBEC-East (Women’s Business Enterprise Center), an awesome organization that provides resources for women starting their own businesses as well as certifications for existing women-owned businesses. This is another fantastic organization that fosters collaboration across its membership base (https://wbeceast.com/).
If you could learn to do something really well what would it be?
Speak multiple languages. I would love to be fluent in at least one other language when I travel!
