Tell us a little about what made you choose this career path.
Growing up, I felt my path was to be an artist. I loved painting. While I was in College in first year graphic design, I was assisting in teaching lithography and acid etching to a group of youth. It was my first experience working with children and it changed my mind. I am grateful for that experience and how my life path transformed. As a result, I have been able to work all over the world, learning from amazing people, and I’ve been challenged and inspired by amazing children.
What is one thing you value about working at Pivot Point?
I value the sense of team and family. I also admire the compassion and commitment of my colleagues and how they go above and beyond for our families. It makes me proud.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my spare time I bake cookies with my two little girls and take them on bike rides. I watch late night TV with my husband, and eat frozen pizza. I also have begun to run, and love it. I ran my first half marathon in the fall of 2015 and now I am addicted!
