So far, what’s your proudest accomplishment in 2019?

Becoming a middle school mentor! It’s a very rewarding endeavor.

What do you “love” about your job? 

The responsibility!

(Complete the sentence) Before I die I want to…

become 100% self-sufficient and visit the Inca archeaological sites.

10 Year Challenge! What were you doing in 2009? How did it help you reach your current position? 

Honestly, I was in my late 20s and pretending to be an adult. I had already become a published author by that time and worked on some awesome projects across several states, but that was only the beginning of a long and winding road. Meeting so many people in so many locations in such a short period of time helped develop my leadership skills and taught me to not shy away from responsibility.

(Complete the sentence) The first time I heard about ELGL was…

In a coworker’s office. I believe I saw the logo on some swag.

What question should we have asked? What’s the answer?

Do you have a personal mantra? Do what you like to be happy, as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone.
