Teammates might misunderstand me as...

Not capable or experienced, because I may come off as timid at times.

In actuality, I have a lot of skills up my sleeves and am always willing to apply them outside of my area of focus, especially if it helps boost the team and get us to our goals.

Things I'd love to learn

I'd like to dive deeper into SEO marketing and social media strategy.

Designing a brand identity and developing voice & tone is one thing. Without a solid marketing strategy and implementation, no brand can excel. SEO and content strategy is where I'd like to continue strengthening my knowledge and skill.

Most fulfilling project I've worked on

Candor has been really rewarding. A total game-changer for team culture.

Being part of an exceptionally collaborative team, all very passionate and focused on self-improvement has had incredible impact on the way I work, and beyond that—the product we're building together is a powerful culture tool that all teams would benefit from implementing. It's rewarding to see the positive shifts it's creating.

I really admire teammates who are…

Passionate about what they do and follow through on their goals 🔥

I want to match with teammates similarly in terms of energy. I like to be surrounded by people who are driven and accountable; those are the qualities I show up with and look for in teams. It motivates me to be even better, if they have the same high degree of ambition.

My Achilles Heel is…

Easily excited by certain tasks, which can make prioritization difficult.

Having someone who is hyper-focused on timelines and targets, and keeps me informed/involved in those conversations is key. I can easily get swept up in deep research or creative experimentation without some structure in place. Meeting concrete targets is something that keeps me driven and more focused.

A fun fact about me is…

For a time, I was a figure skating coach. I especially loved ice dance.

Teaching others how to set goals and break down the steps to reach them (both off and on the ice) is something I've always found rewarding.

How I relax

Bingeing TV and movies; either old favourites or new releases.

I also love breezy strolls to cafes. Coffee and pastry in hand, paired with a good soundtrack, and I feel fully reset.

What I'm like at work

EnthusiasticImaginativeHard WorkingEncouragingThoughtful

Team jamming and brainstorming energize me! The best creative solutions come from these sessions where there is open, in-the-moment discussion and everyone has a voice at the table. Solid, successful teams also keep each other motivated and accountable. I thrive best in environments where everyone is showing up ambitious and supportive.
