What “breaking away from the expected” means to me

For me, “breaking away from the expected” means digging deep to truly understand an issue or how things function; it means constantly asking why to get to root causes that drive behavior.

The most valuable piece of advice I’ve ever received

Being yourself is the risk that always pays off.

My favorite motto

Let’s make better mistakes tomorrow.

My most significant role model

My grandfather combined curiosity, kindness, and humor in a way I aspire to match every day.

What energizes me the most

Helping people find meaningful solutions to problems.

Something people might not know about me

I can read text that is backward and upside down, but not both.
