How do your colleagues describe you?

Very collaborative business partner and likes to help people to get work done as a team. Good at listening to people’s needs and empathize. Able to gain people’s trust quickly and is missed when she leaves the team!

Why do you do what you do?

I have worked in corporate companies for my entire 20-year career in finance and strategy. As I transition into the next phase of my life, I want to utilize my skills and knowledge to help people in my community to succeed, which is personally more rewarding as I’m working for a greater cause!
