MANAGING DIRECTOR, COMMUNITY RELATIONS – Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island

AGE: 39

Why did you select your profession?

I have always been drawn to the idea of contributing to the community. … Overseeing philanthropy and community investment for a large company in Rhode Island allows me to utilize my strengths and is tremendously fulfilling.

What’s the best career advice you’ve received?

Think of your career as a rubber ball and your family as a glass ball. Life is a juggling act … consider that if you drop a ball, one is rubber and will bounce back and one will not. Make your choices accordingly.

What advice would you give your 22-year-old self?

Relax! Your whole life does not need to be mapped out upon college graduation.

What is your favorite Rhode Island escape or hobby?

Every summer we spend a week on Block Island.

How do you keep a work-life balance?

I’m not convinced that there is such a thing as “balance.”

What one thing in your professional life would you like a do-over on?

Nothing, no regrets. … It’s all led me to today, and for that I’m grateful.
