Where I Excel:
I'm a natural leader, organized and encouraging. I like to engage with my teammates to share ideas, build consensus, and foster fulfillment.
I can see the big picture. I like to think from the final product and work my way in to focus on the details with a thorough and thoughtful plan.
I don't just design for a living, it's my passion and drive behind almost everything I do. I'm a creative on and off the clock.
I'm at my best when I am problem solving; and creativity, collaboration, and sheer determination are how I reach a solution.
I’ve spent most of my career in the public sector because I’m inspired by and passionate about the missions of these institutions.
