How would you describe your role, purpose or the outcomes you drive?

Financial reporting and analysis, account reconciliations, and other accounting and finance functions.

How has your previous work experience prepared you for your role with Salo?

I have always worked hard to streamline processes. In my past roles, I have done various forecasting and variance analysis along with day to day business tasks that needed to be completed. In attempting to manage all that was expected of my role, I would look for ways to improve processes to increase efficiencies.

How do you achieve business outcomes?

I achieve business outcomes by understanding the “why” of a process or task and then working to find the most efficient way to complete the task. I believe the ability to do a job well starts with understanding why it is important.

What impact did your upbringing have on the way you approach your work and life?

My upbringing taught me to always be thankful for what I have – to focus on being a happy person first and foremost. I also learned to respect other people’s opinions and experiences.

How would your friends describe you?

Hard working, sarcastic, caring, nurturing, and loyal.

List three interesting things about you, but only one of them needs be true.

I am an excellent singer. I love to knit. I once camped overnight to get Dave Matthews tickets.

What is your favorite thing about working at Salo?

It is REFRESHING and I love the autonomy.
