Get to Know Me

What are your interests outside of work?

Outdoor Activities: I enjoy nature through activities like camping, hiking, birdwatching, or picnicking.

Spending Time with Family and Friends: I focus on building and nurturing relationships with loved ones through quality time spent together.

Reading and Learning: I exploring new topics through reading books, listening to podcasts, or attending workshops and seminars.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

One thing I do daily to support my mental and emotional well-being is practicing mindfulness meditation. Taking just a few minutes each day to sit quietly, focus on my breath, and observe my thoughts without judgment helps me to cultivate present-moment awareness, reduce stress, and enhance my overall sense of calm and clarity.

How do you recharge?

To recharge, I prioritize activities that help me unwind and replenish my energy. This might include spending time in nature, engaging in creative pursuits like cooking, enjoying quality time with loved ones, exercising, or simply indulging in a good book or movie. Disconnecting from screens and technology for a while also allows me to recharge and reconnect with myself. Ultimately, finding moments of joy and relaxation in whatever form they may take helps me to feel recharged and ready to tackle whatever comes my way.

Do you have any pets?

My favorite pet story revolves around my cockatiel, Juju. One particularly stressful day, as I worked at my desk, Juju began to serenade me with his cheerful chirps and whistles. His unexpected serenade brought a smile to my face and lifted my spirits, reminding me of the joy pets can bring even during challenging times. Juju's playful antics and unwavering affection made him not just a pet, but a cherished friend.
