To me, the culture of the organization is what keeps me here. Having a supportive working environment that is so embedded in the way we interact with each other is amazing!

What is a fun fact we should know about you?

I find my inner peace being surrounded by trees. Trees are so representative that we all need strong roots and the mix of sun, rain, and nutrients (or good times, bad times, and FOOD)!
