What’s the best part of your job (other than the people you work with)? The best part of my job is learning about the various needs of my customers (various Business Units and Program Offices); the various vendor options, and how we can strategically create a win-win situation for all parties involved.

Describe your strangest day at work. My strangest day at work was when a naked person escaped from a moving ambulance on I-495 and made it into the employee parking deck.

When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up? When younger, I always wanted to be a Veterinarian until I found out that I couldn’t choose the animals I wanted to work with and would be required to handle snakes, frogs, mice, etc.

What hidden talent or hobby do you have? I am rediscovering the hidden talent of painting.

Who was your most-valued mentor? My most-valued mentor in life has always been my mother.
