The desire to be part of something that is bigger than just myself. I have done various jobs, all of which I have enjoyed, many of which I would only do once, but I enjoyed that once. The reason to do a job is because you wish to do it. Working with cancer is a career driven by putting others first.
What motivates you?
That I have the opportunity to be a life-long learner.
What is the best part about working at iCellate?
Just before I walk in the door at iCellate, my heart beats a little faster...then I feel that big smile starting to appear. When I get all these feelings, I know I'm ready for another exciting day. Every day is filled with stimulating discussions.
What is something that most people don’t know about you?
I’m clumsy. I am getting quite good at yoga. I am definitely a gin and tonic girl. And a mojito girl. And a beer girl...
What is your favorite season?
Fall is by far my favorite. The season takes my breath away with its orange leaves and clear cold days.
