- Role: Learning & Development Leader
- Favorite Subject in School: Vocational Education, because it is competency based and there was a focus not just on theory but also on application of the knowledge and skills. My love of vocational education as both a student and teacher fueled my profession in training and development.
- First Job: Swensen’s ice cream which taught me the importance of customer service, jumping in to help others as demand requires, and preparing during slow times to be ready when there is a rush.
- Desired Superpower: Teleportation! I love experiencing and learning about people and their cultures.
- Favorite DPR Core Value: Integrity, first. Because of DPR’s uncompromising culture of integrity, there is a secure foundation of expectations and trust which enables the other core values – enjoyment, uniqueness and ever forward.
