What skills and expertise do you bring to the team?

Graphic design, infographic design, illustration, and project management.

What do you find most rewarding about your work?

Some people use their professional skills to fund their passion, but I feel unbelievably fortunate to be in the position to help other people achieve their professional goals with a passion I have loved doing all my life.

What makes you proud to work at Blue Beyond?

I’m so proud to be a part of a company that not only creates spectacular work to help their clients succeed, but a company that cares for, encourages and inspires everyone involved throughout the entire experience. In my MBA program we were constantly reminded that — despite it being so data-driven — businesses are made up of people, and Blue Beyond has instilled that message into its core.

What is your favorite time of the year? Why?

My favorite time of the year is the autumn months of September and October. My birthday is at the end of October and Halloween is my favorite holiday! I adore dressing up in elaborate costumes and you can’t beat the gorgeous look and feel of the fall.

What is the most important lesson you've learned in the last year?

The most important lesson I’ve learned this past year is to stay true to your goals, even when life throws bigger curve balls in your direction than you could ever imagine. There were so many moments this past year when I questioned if my goals were relevant anymore with the changing world. I’ve had so much doubt whispered in my ear, either by others or myself. There was doubt in my plans, my passions and the purpose behind them. In the end, you have to remind yourself why you want what you want and keep that as your fuel to burn in the darkness. It will (and did) pay off.
