Professionally speaking — what makes you special?
What makes me special is my innate ability to comfortably and successfully deal with ambiguity. I am highly skilled at bringing order to chaos, simplifying complexity and delivering tangible outcomes for both external clients and partners and with internal teams.
What are your hidden talents?
I am an active outdoors person and spend as much time as possible outside biking, hiking, kayaking, golfing, skiing, snowshoeing, gardening and traveling – in almost any type of weather. I adhere to the thinking that there is “no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing” – a good mantra for a native Minnesotan.
