I chose accounting because I figured that it was a safe place to start, and the profession exposed me to a wide variety of industries.
Where do you see yourself professionally in 10 years?
I would eventually like to … transition into an investor/director that owns and guides companies to success.
What’s the best career advice you’ve ever been given?
There are no secrets. You must always prepare for everything you do.
How do you keep a work-life balance?
I have spent a large portion of my life without balance, and it has come at a very high price. I have a tattoo on my body that reminds me to keep a balanced life.
What one thing in your professional life would you like a do-over on?
I was a pretty cocky kid in my 20s. I thought I knew it all, and took many things for granted. I would love a chance to go back and be more humble and respectful to the people who gave me my opportunities. •
