Why did you select your profession?

Being in marketing, public relations and event production covers the best of all worlds. Always meeting interesting people, creating new concepts and designing new events never gets boring.

Where do you see yourself professionally in 10 years?

Hopefully sitting on an island somewhere, being told my team is doing a great job in my absence.

What’s the best career advice you’ve ever been given?

Always carry someone’s bags to the end. Everyone goes through tough times and it’s important to stand by them.

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

It’s worth it to keep pushing and try not to take everything so seriously.

What is your favorite escape or hobby?

Enjoying a variety of wines with good friends.

How do you keep a work-life balance?

I stay optimistic in all situations and make quality time to enjoy time with my family. Otherwise all the hard work has no value.

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

I would have liked to have earned a higher degree by staying in college past my bachelor’s degree. •
