How would you describe your role, purpose or the outcomes you drive?
I view my role as a trusted advisor for both organizations and top talent. Committed to making a meaningful impact by connecting people.

How has your previous work experience prepared you for your role with Salo?
Having previously spent time in a variety of sales, finance, and consulting roles within a Fortune 150 company and a Big Four public accounting firm, I believe my breadth of experiences allows me to quickly recognize challenges organizations are faced with and identify top talent.

How do you achieve business outcomes?
By listening. By being genuinely interested in meeting people and hearing their story. By being accountable and following through. By supporting people in finding their passion and purpose in a career. By being transparent.

What impact did your upbringing have on the way you approach your work and life?
I was raised in a small town, in a household of two educators where I was taught the importance of responsibility, honesty, empathy, humility, work ethic, and respect. Having attended Saint John’s University, I continue to be guided by the Benedictine Values.

How would your friends describe you?
Sensible. Quick witted. Loyal. Fun loving.

List three interesting things about you, but only one of them needs be true.
I am bilingual; I am named after my two grandfathers; I attended the 1991 Twins World Series.

What is your favorite thing about working at Salo?
The consistent energy and sense of community.
