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

I partner with clients to solve complex problems in a timely manner. My role is focused on understanding my clients’ needs and developing the right team and solution to get them to their desired future state.

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

I have always been drawn to the messy, complicated projects.  I enjoy working to solve problems or “untangling the ball of Christmas lights.” I have a broad background and can see patterns quickly. I am also good at assembling and leading the right teams to provide solutions for our clients.

How do you achieve business outcomes?

I believe it’s important to listen to multiple perspectives to gain a complete understanding of the issue we are facing. Communicating early and often is key in solving problems.

What impact did your upbringing have on your work and life?

I have been blessed with a family that taught me the value of hard work and leading by example.  No matter what title you have you can always pitch in and push a broom to help the team.

How would your friends describe you?

A good listener, generous, positive, connector.  I am the friend that is always scheduling gatherings and events to bring people together.

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

I brought the American flag out at a Chicago Bears game. I enjoy race car driving. I enjoy camping and being outdoors.

What is your favorite thing about working at Salo?

The Salo culture is very special.  It’s great to work with people dedicated to living our company values and having fun while we work.
