Your biggest break: Being hired by C&R a week before my graduation from University of Delaware.
Best career advice you ever got: Don’t be afraid to ask and receive a “no” because someone is looking to give a “yes.”
Two words that best describe you: Passionate and honest.
Work /life balance technique you recommend: I’d recommend turning off or not checking business e-mail after getting home unless there is a deadline or need already communicated. Any unexpected urgent e-mails will be evident the next day and you’ll have the resources and team to be able to respond more effectively.
If you were in charge of Delaware: Reduce taxes.
In one sentence, define “success.” Success is the achievement of a continuous and evolving set of personal and professional goals, through persistence and constant learning.
