What was my “Aha” moment?

My “Aha” moment was when I came into the office for my interview. I was given a brief tour by Chelsea and I was like a little kid in a candy store. I couldn’t stop looking around and thinking, “this place is awesome!” Coming from the usual stuffy corporate environment, it was a breath of fresh air to see people actually enjoying their jobs. The office was decorated to show the company culture and personality, and I left the building crossing my fingers I got the job!


What makes my Monday awesome?

Waking up in the morning :). But seriously, every day is a new day, and Monday is no different. You can’t take life too seriously. Like Ferris Bueller says, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”


Which of the core values influences you the most?

Be Yourself & Speak Up I think influences me the most. Always be yourself, always! That’s one thing I’ve tried to do my whole life, whether it’s in a relationship, at work, or at home, is to be myself. Everything after that comes easy, because you’re always putting your best self forward.
