Tell us a little about your current role and what you enjoy most about it?​

I am responsible for monitoring and analyzing contract budgets to help ensure we stay within budget while maximizing profit. I enjoy forecasting and then seeing how the outcome compares to the projection. I also enjoy analyzing data in general.

How have you maintained your mental and physical health and wellness during the pandemic?

The pandemic has made me think about life differently. I make conscious decisions to live in the moment. I found myself, pre-pandemic, getting wrapped up in small things that really had no value. When places shut down due to COVID, it gave me and my family time to think and regroup on what is important.

What are you most proud of in your life - career, accomplishments, etc.?

I consider getting my degree an accomplishment and a blessing; doors opened that might not have without commitment and perseverance to obtain it. I enjoy what I do, and it makes a difference when waking up each morning. ​​​​
