What do you like/love about Chrysalis and your role?

Spending time with my family and keeping active.

What are your top strengths/talents?

I am a passionate and an authentic team player.

When are you at your best?

I’m at my best when pulling apart complex problems and figuring out what’s actually going on.

Who is a leader you look up to/why?

Marcus Buckingham- I remember being captivated by the way he defined strength as being an activity that strengthens you, drawing you in, making time fly by while you’re doing it, and it making you feel strong. A career highlight for me was meeting him in person in 2015.

Anything else you’d like to share?

I never wear socks, I always carry a pair of running shoes in my car, and I will never say no to going for a run.
