What do you most enjoy about your work?

I love helping others learn new tasks and seeing the business impact of strong training initiatives. I firmly believe in our iEAR approach and its ability to drive learning.


I have a passion for traveling to new places and experiencing different cultures. At home, nothing beats a day at the beach, taking my mom to a favorite restaurant, or hanging out with my 7-year-old boxer Podi and 2-year-old cat Katy Purry.
