How I try to show up at work

ThoughtfulCreativeAnalyticalHard WorkingEnthusiastic

I work best with heads down time and work in spurts. Definitely need creative/cooling off periods. I prefer to have verbal back and forths than over slack/email.

My areas for growth

Clearly communicates purpose and visionMentors and develops teammates for their growthMaintains effective work life balance

Balance is something that is really important to me, and especially balancing the ways that I interact with teammates. Would love to ensure that we're all "having fun" together (I.e. time well spent) vs just all about the job/delivering on a goal.
