Director, Business Conduct
What is your most rewarding career accomplishment? To be gifted with a position where I am encouraged and supported in exercising my true passion: to provide a voice, inspiration and engagement opportunities to others. I am continually afforded opportunities to influence the enthusiasm and capabilities of team members, the competencies of leaders, and to affect the implementation of enterprise-wide change management strategies.

What was the best advice you ever received? “Be all that you are and all you can be.” Live your purpose. Engage people in true conversation, set high expectations and provide meaningful work and growth.
What was the defining moment in your life in which you understood your leadership? When I realized success is not an assumption, it’s an assertion. You have to commit the energy and equity to get it all done plus some. Your leadership has to inspire like behavior. As a leader I have to motivate others to proactively engage in stretch assignments. I must ignite their interest and sufficiently leverage their ability to perform their best work.
Given the chance, would you do anything differently? I would have lived my worth with fierce tenacity every day. I would have flourished in the endorsement of my Mom and used her real confidence to accelerate my momentum rather than debating its relevancy and in effect stifling who I am intended to be.
