How did you get into your current profession?
I was persuaded by a fellow RED RAIDER and my first job out of college was in facilities management. I worked closely with the legal and tax team and was hooked.
What gets you up and going every day?

I think my people skills are great. Telling people what to do comes pretty natural to me and getting things organized and I LOVE TO WIN!
