As you enter your office, what would you choose to be your walk-up or theme song: “It’s between ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams, because of the way it uplifts my spirit, and ‘Uptown Funk’ by Bruno Mars because of the beat and it makes me want to dance.”  

Favorite destinations: “The islands for the beauty and peacefulness – and major cities with art, theater, and music entertainment.”  

Career advice: “Surrounding myself with individuals stronger than me in other skill levels is critical to success. Empowering and uplifting those who report to me or support me is also an important leadership skill.”  

Toughest business decision you’ve had to make: “Making human resource decisions about people in ways that keep them whole while also maintaining the ongoing operation and integrity of an organization.”
