    Living

When I think of my team, the saying “iron sharpens Iron” comes to mind. We are always learning from one another and they make my experience here so rewarding and fulfilling.

    Jump rope, Yoga, Meditation, “Netflix (and sometimes chill)”, and more recently gardening. For fun, I am a fine art and portrait photographer.
