When I started my first business, my training wheels had only been off for a few years. A friend told me her bike needed fixing, and by that afternoon I had five bikes lined up in my garage. I assumed I just had to clank some tools around, flip my cap backwards, and the bikes would practically fix themselves. Thankfully, when I realized I was in over my head, my dad became my business partner and helped me finish the job.

I've improved my decision-making skills since this experience, but my core traits remain the same. I’m driven by a pressing need to make an impact. I believe I can learn anything I need to, and I never let a fear of failure stand in my way. Everyone's actions are guided by what matters the most to them, and for me that means making a unique and lasting difference with people and opportunities I'm involved in.

I make a lasting impact as a professional, because I’m a whole-brain marketer:
• Creatively, I have experience in product and brand messaging, writing, and editing.
• Analytically, I have experience in data analysis, ops management, and business development.
