How I relax

Completely disconnecting from technology with my puppy Dallas.

I'm energized at work by…

getting sh*t done.

Getting shit done is like a shot of espresso for my soul - it gives me an instant burst of energy and motivation. There's something deeply satisfying about tackling a task head-on and seeing it through to completion. Plus, the sense of accomplishment that comes with crossing something off my to-do list is truly addictive - it's like a little victory dance every time!

Values cover image

My core values


My core values of adventure, challenge, fairness, humor, and success are like my personal squad of superheroes. Adventure and challenge are like the dynamic duo, always pushing me to new heights and making sure I never get bored. Fairness is the moral compass that keeps me on the right track, and humor is like the class clown that knows just how to make me smile even on the toughest of days. And success? Well, success is the boss that I'm always trying to impress - but hey, I figure if I keep working hard, maybe one day I'll get that promotion to superhero status myself! In all seriousness though, these values are truly important to me and help guide me through life with a sense of purpose and direction.

I like to get feedback when its given…

face to face

I only accept feedback when it's said directly to me, not respect for keyboard gangsters.

My biggest fear

Being weak, controlled, powerless

As an Aquarius and a Type 8 Enneagram, the idea of being perceived as weak in any capacity is a huge trigger for me. It's like nails on a chalkboard, except instead of nails, it's my sense of pride and strength being scraped away. So, if you want to avoid triggering my inner beast, best to steer clear of any weakness-related topics - I prefer to keep my tough exterior intact, thank you very much.

I work best as a…

Strategist: I love managing projects. High-level strategy convos is where I show up best.

The wink, tongue out emoji is simply iconic. It's the perfect combination of playfulness with just a hint of cheekiness thrown in.

One thing that might surprise you about me…

Some might be surprised to learn that I'm actually quite hands-off.

When it's time for team updates or leadership meetings.

The best environment for me is:

deep work time slots only

When it comes to getting work done, I'm all about deep work time slots - they're like the holy grail of productivity for me. I mean, who wouldn't want to block out distractions and dive headfirst into a task without any interruptions? It's like having a fortress of solitude, but instead of fighting crime, I'm conquering my to-do list. And let's be honest, if anyone dares to disturb me during a deep work session, they're getting a serious stink-eye - my mental health demands it. So if you need me, I'll be in my fortress, slaying tasks and taking names (with a side of healthy mental balance, of course).

I learn best by…

taking a course

If there's one thing that really gets my nerdy heart pumping, it's signing up for a course to learn a new concept. Call me a learning junkie, but there's just something so exhilarating about following a syllabus and crushing each lesson like a boss. Plus, let's be real, there's no better feeling than acing a quiz and doing a victory dance. So bring on the courses, because this nerd is ready to hit the books (and maybe break out some dance moves too).

Me when sh*t hits the fan

Jessica Winder when sh*t hits the fan

I'm like a superhero with plans A through Z at the ready, just waiting for shit to hit the fan so I can swoop in and save the day. Proactivity is my middle name, and I'm always one step ahead of any potential disaster. So bring on the chaos - I've got plans for days and I'm ready to use 'em!

Things that deeply motivate me…

Learning as much as I can 🤓

Learning is an endless journey that fuels my curiosity and passion for knowledge. The more I learn, the more empowered and confident I feel in tackling new challenges and pursuing my goals. Being deeply motivated by learning allows me to continuously grow, adapt, and make meaningful contributions in both my personal and professional life.

I'm always up for brainstorming sessions where we can explore unconventional ideas without any limitations. Let's think of some innovative employee benefits or ways to address the issue of pay inequality.
