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

Connecting talent and business needs in order to drive outcomes.

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

My previous work in Big Four accounting and at a major bank as a CPA has not only broadened my experience in the industry, but also honed my ability to quickly identify issues and come up with collaborative solutions.

How do you achieve business outcomes?

I like to know what makes people “tick.” I love the challenge of creating and managing diverse teams, and I have a talent for maximizing on each person’s strengths.

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

I grew up in Minnesota and was taught determination and perseverance beginning at my first job at age 12.  I was brought up knowing that if there’s something I want, I should make a plan and go after it.  No obstacle is too big to overcome.

How would your friends describe you?

Outgoing, positive, always planning the party, risk-taker

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

I’ve met and had drinks with Bill Nye the Science Guy.  I have branded cattle.  I’m a sports fan and have been to a Super Bowl.

What is your favorite thing about working at Salo?

I love the positive energy, the drive to be the best, and the innovation (I guess that’s three!).
