What are some of the things you love about being a Thriver?
Being on a team with people that you trust, connect with, and ultimately share the same goals with. I’ve never met a stranger and my role allows me to meet new people every single day from all over the world. It’s incredible! Earning trust and introducing potential clients to the Thrive culture, values, and work processes is a privilege that I don’t take lightly.
What are your favorite sports to A) watch and B) play?
Watch – Hockey, College Football, and College Basketball
Play – Volleyball, basketball, racquetball, soccer, and anything else I can find people to play with
If you were a candy, which would you be? Why?
BeanBoozled Jelly Beans – real life is full of flavor: sweet, stinky, and sour. I’ve decided there’s no use pretending any of us has it all together.
If you could do anything to make a living, what would you do?
Learn to speak every language on the planet fluently with the right accent. That’s 6,909 minus the 3 I speak now. So, only 6,906 left. Assuming I live until I’m 100, that’s only 97 languages per year, a little over 8 per month — no big.
What’s the weirdest thing on/near your desk right now?
Toothpaste/Toothbrush – can’t be having stanky breath for these screen share meetings.
What’s the hands-down best thing to have for lunch?
Who’s got time for lunch?
