What advice would you give to your younger self?  

You will find your passion, it’s a journey. Don’t hesitate to take opportunities to do something you have not done before. Plan time in your day/month or year to focus on learning something new. Follow your curiosity, you may uncover interests you did not know you had. Find time to do the things you enjoy, and all of these little steps along the way will help you find a place in life that you appreciate.  

What keeps you inspired? 

 I enjoy helping others. Ideally teaching someone to help themselves, but also taking away a burden or providing support to someone in need, brainstorming with others for ideas, or mentoring someone to help them find their own solutions. Putting yourself into someone else’s shoes always gives a different perspective and appreciation for others around us 

Nominations will open in mid July for the 2024 HSMAI Top 25!
