"For many years, we were kind of on a desolate island, not knowing if we were doing things right or wrong. Junto exposed us to so many different companies, and it opened up a new world."
What is your strength when it comes to emotional intelligence?
What is your superpower?
Tenacity, grit, not shutting the f**k up until I get it my way.

Preach what you speak, and lead from the front lines.
How would you describe your areas of expertise based on industry, market, and/or function?
Sales and marketing, and just being relentless until something happens.
What was your most memorable Junto moment?
Day one was really memorable. I went first to share my personal lifeline and remember asking myself if I should censor it or not. I gave everybody exactly who I am, and it really set the tempo for the rest of the day and moving forward.
What is one book, blog, or podcast you recommend widely?
Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead. It’s one book that changed my life.
What have you learned about yourself through participating in Junto?
For many years, we were kind of on a desolate island, not knowing if we were doing things right or wrong. Junto exposed us to so many different companies, and it opened up a new world in that there’s not a right or wrong way, there’s just sometimes a better way. I’m inspired by people who have found success in their own way.
