The best environment for me is:

time for deep work in the AMVirtual or in person collab time

Communication is really important in a team, Emails and messaging leave little room for dialog and creative collaboration. I think purposeful meetings for touching base, team building, brainstorming, and professional development are important and we have many tools available to have them in person or virtual. More voices at the table mean more ideas and better solutions.

Things that deeply motivate me…

Helping others ❤️Getting things done ✅Work to make the 🌎 a better placeBeing my most authentic self 🎨Learning as much as I can 🤓

I'm a mission-driven person who loves to learn. I truly believe education is the game changer when it comes to changing your socioeconomic level and as a first-generation student who struggled to get through, it's a value of mine to do what I can to prevent this suffering for others.

I like to get feedback when its given…

My core values

AchievementAdventureCommunityFairnessLearningMeaningful WorkRespectService

Working with people with shared values and a shared mission makes me happy. I like helping people and sharing knowledge and feeling good about the work I do.

Epic work fails

Misapplied a big payment, it went to the Feds & took 3 weeks to get back!

Even when you think you're doing everything right, and you've got it, you are not infallible. I didn't believe I had truly made the error until my supervisor showed me what I had done. I applied it to their Federal loans rather than their commercial (FFELP loan). Double-check your work, and be open to the idea that you can make a mistake because we all do.

I like processes that make sense. If something takes a really long time, I'm probably already trying to find a more efficient process for it. I like to ask questions about what I'm learning.
