- What motivates you? My motivation stems from my curiosity. If I don’t have the answer, I am researching to find it.
- What from your past experience directly impacts your work today? I’ve worked at companies where I had the opportunity to utilize my investigative skills. I enjoy the challenge of “finding” the missing piece or “pin-pointing” the information that doesn’t quite fit with the task at hand. This impacts the work I do today because I am able to audit interest rates and update cash flow spreadsheets along with other responsibilities.
- Any “did you know?” random facts about yourself to share? I love to paint abstract art and bake cupcakes.
