When I'm stressed, you might notice me…

Be more adamant about saying “no” to new work

You’ll make my day by taking work off my plate where you can- I’ll return the favor when you’re on the other side!

My Achilles Heel is…

I can get lost in the details and lose sight of the big picture

You can help me stay focused by making scopes of work and intended outcomes clear, and nudging me when I start to swirl.

Something that drives me crazy 😵‍💫 🤬

Gossiping. Let’s be impeccable with our word!

It’s not productive and only fills both ends of the gossip with negativity.

Best way to get me excited about something

Show me how it’ll advance a new skill for me. I love learning.

How I relax

An elaborate skin care routine, a good massage, a camping trip with friends

And a nap on the beach

My happy place

Palm trees, string lights, colorful skies, live music in the background.

A fun fact about me is…

I studied Arabic for a few years 🇱🇧

I’m rusty now. But diving back in this year!
