Where do you see yourself
professionally in 10 years?
As much as society begs us to dream big and think far out, I try to maintain a here-and-now approach.

All they can say is no. … This philosophy has allowed me to embrace the art of the calculated risk.
What advice would you give your 22-year-old self?
Take the time to value and build professional relationships. Having the support and respect of others within your organization is perhaps the most valuable commodity.
How do you keep a work-life balance?
