What I do for our clients:
I build the initial connection with our clients, establish trust, lean into understanding their pain points, and provide a solution to make their business run smoother.
What I do outside of work:
I’m a mommy of a 7-year-old little girl, so much of what I do outside work involves either keeping her entertained or running around with her activities (please get your Girl Scout Cookies here!).
Most rewarding thing about being a part of IJA:
The family atmosphere. As soon as I joined this firm, I could immediately feel the warmth and the “we are one” culture. Everyone here wants one another to win, and that’s rare to find.
Why IJA is different:
IJA is client-focused more than profit-focused. Every time we get together as a firm, it is reiterated we are here to serve and that takes precedence over earning a profit 100% of the time. Relationships are everything.
Best place for thinking:
Anywhere outside and alone. When I’m in the quiet of nature, I can clear my head and think logically.
Favorite pizza toppings:
Jet’s Veggie pizza – so your basic, no meat options. I eat meat, but there’s something about a veggie pizza, especially from Jet’s.

Christmas, hands down! This season is about love, family, and generosity. Although it is typically cold outside, my heart is so warm during this time of year.
Ask for permission or ask for forgiveness?
Ask for forgiveness. I believe in failing forward. Innovation and creativity can only live in a space where fear is not.
Best advice I’ve ever received:
People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.
A few of my favorite things:
Coffee, traveling, online shopping, trying new restaurants with my daughter
