Education:  CSU Sacramento

What was your path to becoming where you are in your career now?

My path has been short and rough, but clearly led and purposeful

My path has been short and rough, but clearly led and purposeful. After graduating from CSU Sacramento in December 2015, I immediately jumped into a position with a local firm. While there, I made some wonderful connections that led me to CJA!

Personal Philosophy:

  • Every day is a new opportunity to learn and improve, and a little smile can go a long way.

  • So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. – 1 Corinthinans 10:31

Focus/Hobbies outside of work: 

I love teaching music and performance, and also being OUTSIDE exploring and enjoying new adventures with friends or pets!

What inspires your work every day? 

The idea that I am helping to create safe and inspiring spaces for others to occupy is a significant inspiration. The helpful, supportive, fun and encouraging environment here at CJA makes it easy to enjoy work and inspire me to learn and improve each day and reach for my own potential.

If you were a car, what make and model would you be and what color? Why?

Toyota Camry, Silver. Don’t get too bored – this car proves to be reliable and comfortable, gets the job done, is easily accessible and approachable. It doesn’t draw a lot of attention to itself, but the Silver color gives it the sparkle and individuality it needs.
