What skills and expertise do you bring to the team?
Having worked for years in the start-up culture, I take energy from projects that demand courage, collaboration and a “learn while doing” approach. I consider myself an excellent communicator, an effective people-motivator and a creative and solution-driven problem solver.
What do you find most rewarding about your work?
The moments when we (our clients and our team) see and feel the whole as greater than the sum of it’s parts. The feeling takes me back to my days as a stage manager of our high school productions—standing in the wings when the lights went up, and all of the behind the scenes work falls into place on stage.
What makes you proud to work at Blue Beyond?
Being a part of a company that not only values delivering with excellence for our clients, but that values collective learning and individual growth.
What do you think makes an effective team?
Valuing the success of others as your own. This was something I felt very distinctly when I joined the company and something I continue to experience and work to achieve everyday.
