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 can 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.

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.

Motivations cover image

Things that deeply motivate me…

Helping others ❤️Being 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.

How I relax cover image

How I relax

Reading, Hiking, and exploring new places. I also send postcards for fun!

I love to travel to other countries, try new foods, and go to the occasional karaoke night!

My workplace

Hope Dixon's workplace setup

I don't think I could survive without post-it notes and writing stuff down, that and my planner keep me semi-organized!

I like to get feedback when its given…

1:1with examplesmonthlylove recurring, biweekly or monthly

Constructive Feedback is what I try to provide to others and let them know what I see being done well! For me, I don't like impromptu meetings, and perfer a topic on hand when possible!
