What are you most proud of (personally or in your career)?
My son, Carter, is the best version of myself, and I am proud to be on this life journey with him. He’s compassionate, smart, funny and kind, and keeps me young at heart. I am humbled to be his mama.

What keeps you professionally motivated?
In the mid-90s, there wasn’t an undergraduate course in Social Media, or WordPress or drip campaigns. And as I remember it, I didn’t even have an email address until I landed on campus. As our industry evolves, we must continuously educate ourselves. I am grateful for every opportunity to learn from others – mentors, colleagues, friends, family – and apply that knowledge in my professional career. That is what motivates me every day – learning.

What do you do outside of work? What are you known for? What do you love?
I love experimenting in the kitchen with new recipes. It’s tough to dine out as a vegetarian, so we cook at home often. Thai dishes are my favorite to both cook and eat! Outside of the kitchen, I enjoy yoga, live music, impromptu get-togethers, traveling and reading.
