Career Highlights: When I reflect on my career highlights, I can’t help but think of all the opportunities I have been given with my employer’s support to be involved in our community. It is one of the most fulfilling aspects of my career.
Volunteer Activities: I have been actively involved with Leadership Stillwater and the Leadership Stillwater Alumni Association. I’ve served as the Treasurer for the Oklahoma WONDERtorium and most currently as Board President. I had the privilege to attend the Stillwater Police Department Citizens Academy which opened the door to many other community outreach program opportunities as well.
What do you think about Stillwater? Stillwater has been my home since I landed here to attend to OSU. I grew up in a rural community and had always appreciated our small-town community involvement and support. Early on I learned that Stillwater offers those same community values, but on a much larger scale and I’m thankful that my son will have those same experiences I had growing up. It truly is a great place to raise a family!
Best Piece of Advice Given Regarding Your Career: I was given the advice once of how important it is to work for the right kind of boss and it is certainly true. Great bosses will teach you and guide you by example and I value that type of leadership when navigating my career.
"I am beyond grateful to have been nominated and selected along with other professionals in our community. It was a very memorable moment in my career and it makes it even more special that I was able to share the moment alongside with several friends as well."
