What makes you proud to work at Blue Beyond?

I am proud and humbled to be working with a team of smart, capable women who lean in every single day. The guys on the team are pretty cool too.

What is your favorite time of the year? Why?

Summer! For me, it’s about family and friends, warm nights on the patio with a bottle of wine, lingering over a sunset, concerts in the park, and afternoons in a hammock with only a great book as my companion.

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

Most problems in life are significantly improved by time spent with a good friend, a good glass of wine, and a good night’s sleep.

If you could take the year off, what would you do?

Write a book about my dad. He had a really fascinating life, having grown up as a very light-skinned black man during a time in our country when segregation laws gave him the option to choose – he could have “passed” as a white man but chose not to, eventually graduating from a historically black college and dedicating his life to social work and helping other people of color. He was a great father and human being. He’s been gone 9 years and I want to honor his legacy.
