What is your personal motto or mantra?
Things take as long as you have to do them.

What is the most rewarding part of being a BFSG Team Member?
The most rewarding part about being a BFSG Team Member are the friendships I have built during my 17 years. I joined because of the friendly and collaborative approach taken during my interview process. I could tell that the team enjoyed working with each other and interactions were light-hearted and genuine. This team-based approach is different than you see in other financial institutions, where workers are typically out for themselves, and I think it shows through in the quality of innovative work we are able to produce. I’ve done my best to continue that tradition and hopefully pass on the experience I had to each of the employees we have hired and will hire in the future.

The one word or phrase that best describes me is:

If you were a superhero, what superpower would you have?
Flying for sure! I love a good rollercoaster and the exhilaration of being able to travel through the air at high speeds would be second to none.
