How might clients describe you? Forthright, intelligent and proactive.
What does “listen. think. deliver.” mean to you? It means honoring our owners and business partners first by respecting their intelligence and experience. Then we must take the time to create innovative solutions that match each owner’s unique story. Finally, we must deliver on what we promise. We can’t stop listening after the first interaction; it’s our continuous collaboration that helps us deliver together.
What’s something you enjoy doing on your day off? I’ve been known to ‘moonlight’ at my husband’s gourmet market on the weekends. I get paid in wine and cheese, so it’s not a bad gig!
What’s something people might be surprised to know about you? I’ve relocated to seven CDM Smith offices around the globe and have worked short-term in a great many more.
