Q: What is the best piece of career/PR advice you’ve received?

A: Always be open to new professional experiences because you never know where they will lead. This could come in the form of volunteering for a project or client team you wouldn’t typically see yourself on. Trying new things at work can create a newfound appreciation for aspects of the job you didn’t know you were interested in.

Q: What recent tech trend do you find particularly fascinating?

A: Working with a variety of technology companies allows me to see many applications for emerging tech in different industries. One trend I find particularly interesting is the use of augmented reality in the healthcare industry. The fact that AR is helping doctors identify cancerous cells faster and more accurately than ever blows my mind. It’s hard to wrap my head around the technological advances the healthcare industry will see in the next 10, 20, 30 years.

Q: What is your least favorite word and why?

A: I’m not so fond of the word, “like” as a go-to sentence filler. I grossly overused this word as a pre-teen and am still scarred from it.

Q: Tell us something we wouldn’t know about you.

A: Upon returning from a trip to Madagascar, I had to receive a full round of rabies shots.
