Why did you join Toffler Associates?

After almost ten years in the world of consulting and contracting, I wanted a company where I could grow my root, personally and professionally. TA was the perfect fit for my career and personal goals as I looked ahead over the next ten years.

What is your superpower?

Smiling! People often forget the sheer disarming and connecting power of the smile. “You’re never fully dressed without a smile!”

What excites you about 2030?

I am excited by thinking about the world I want to build for my children to grow in. What kind of people will they be in seven years? What will the world be teaching them? What will I be teaching them? How can my work today impact their tomorrow?

What do you enjoy most about Toffler Associates client work?

The client work at TA is rapid pace and always changing. The “stuck” feeling I had previously experienced in the world of contracting and consulting is hard to come by at TA. What you did yesterday, may not be what you do today – and I love that rapid pace of change.

What is your favorite part about TA culture?

I can be myself! Previously in the junior years of my career, I often held back – too nervous to share my thoughts or participate in active discussion due to lack of seniority or experience. At TA, everyone is encouraged to speak up and be a part of the firm’s discussions, regardless of experience level or title.

How do you spend your free time?

FAMILY! And occasionally learning more about driving Stick Shift in our Slingshot!
