Day to Day

A great starts with a coffee meeting with my team to plan what needs to be tackled that day and for the rest of the week. Then we work on solving problems for our client and show drafts to our internal leadership for feedback and to the client to discuss purpose and objectives. By the end of the day, we have a polished, thoughtful response to whatever challenge we are addressing.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

The main need is the ability to adapt and evolve. I need to be prepared for any challenges that may come up, though they may not always play to my strengths. Keeping an open mind and seeking out new experiences and learning opportunities is a must. One of the best pieces of advice I ever received was this, "Just because school is over doesn't mean you stop learning. Now it is your responsibility to keep learning and keep improving, and, if you don't, it is your fault."

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

Plan your major goals at least five years ahead. The courses you take in high school and your extracurricular activities play a heavy role in your college options, and knowing what you are driving towards while in high school and college will help you stay on the right path. For example, if you want to go to certain schools you will need to get to a certain level of math in high school, and if you don't plan that now your eliminating those schools as options for yourself in the future.
