Things I want to learn cover image

Things I'd love to learn

I wish I spoke a second language...

A fun fact about me is…

I'm a really good skiier and figure skater. I'm an artist and writer.

I've written a book of short stories and have been working on another over the past couple of years. I'm always creating something... (in the middle of knitting a blanket right now :) ).

When I'm stressed, you might notice me…

looking for a donut... :)

Remind me to drink some water or take a deep breath! :)

Epic work fails

Pushed a child on a swing and she went flying off it, landed on her back.

Never pushed a body part again - only from the seat or chains!

I like to get feedback when its given…

1:1face to faceidc just tell mewith kindnesswith context

I might inwardly balk in the moment as I catch my balance, but I always deeply consider and appreciate feedback to understand how I can improve or be more effective.

I'm energized at work by…

getting sh*t done.solving problemshelping others succeedjam sessions

Motivating, clarifying conversations! and COFFEE!

How I stand out

Manages feelings of self and others during conflictCreates warm, caring relationships with teammatesInvests and is interested in personal and professional growthMotivated by making community/world impactClearly communicates purpose and vision

Self awareness is my superpower, and lends to my favorite quote: "The more we know ourselves, the more we know everyone." It's easy for me to accept humans for who they are, where they're at. I'm genuinely interested and fascinated by everyone! :)

Motivations cover image

Things that deeply motivate me…

Helping others ❤️Work to make the 🌎 a better placeBeing my most authentic self 🎨Learning as much as I can 🤓Having a good time 🕺Working with people I love 🥰

I mean of course we all need a paycheck and I love to feel valued as well... but what really motivates me is creating authentic connections and doing good in the world, for the world. Enjoying this human experience as much as possible motivates me and supporting one another along the way.

How to make my day cover image

You will make my freakin day if you…

private praise / thank you!a dank MEMEsend me pet pics

Especially in a remote environment because we don't often "see" each other, I love reaching out on occasion to colleagues to just check in and say hi, I appreciate you! That said, I welcome any occasion for a colleague to reach out and do the same! i.e. Hope you're well, have a nice day! :)

The best environment for me is:

time for deep work in the AMlots of in person collab
