What do you like to do outside of work? What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend?
Gardening is one of my greatest passions. Observing and participating in various plant cycles highlights how every process or step is vital to achieving a desired outcome; in this case, delicious food I can enjoy with my family and friends. There is just no better way to enjoy a Saturday morning.

What are the most important lessons you’ve learned in life?
The importance of actively listening to people. I learned early on in my career that the actual words said tend to be just the tip of the iceberg. You must pay attention to how, why, and where it is said to truly get the whole picture.
