Q. What keeps you up at night?
I’m probably too organized at times (I know my family would agree), so I tend to focus on things that need to get done, both in my personal life and work. I like to have some type of plan for getting them done. Naturally, 9 times out of 10 nothing goes according to plan which, in turn then, keeps me up.
Q. Who is (or was) the most influential person in your life?
My mother is an amazing person. She has shown me by constant example what things in life are most important. Everyone who knows her understands she’s a friend on whom they can depend. She has always been extremely supportive of me in all my pursuits and positive in her thinking. She provided me a very stable childhood and instilled in me the values and beliefs I have today.
Q. If you could pass on a nugget of wisdom to aspiring accountants, what would it be?
Your career is what you personally make it, so take the lead and be proactive in the steps that will take you down a path of learning and dedication. You make your own success.
Beyond the Boardroom
What do you do to relax?
I enjoy watching and playing most kinds of sports, reading and spending time outdoors. However, the best is spending time with my family.
