Mentors and how have they assisted you in your career: I have been fortunate to have tremendous managers who have been great mentors and role models. Listening and learning from their experiences and acting on their advice has assisted me in achieving my goals. I’ve also formed lasting friendships with many of these individuals.

What are you most proud of in your career achievements?
