What industries/technologies are you most excited about?
I am interested in the healthcare technology industry. In the post-pandemic world, I am excited to see how health technology is catching up to increased and changing demand. At its core, health tech focuses on helping people by facilitating the healthcare process from both the consumer and healthcare worker sides. I am seeing this industry’s increased visibility in the news, and I am excited to see what comes next!
Tell us about a recent win on behalf of a Bospar client.
I was happy to see top-tier coverage of a client’s survey regarding cybersecurity and the midterm elections. Cybersecurity during such a tumultuous time is extremely important, and I am gratified that the survey is reaching such a wide audience.
What was your dream job as a youngster?
I wanted to be an artist or art teacher. I studied art history in college, and I get to be creative daily at Bospar.
Who is your professional role model, and why?
Dolly Parton has always been a role model for me. I have loved her music since I was a child, but now as an adult, I admire her as a fabulous entrepreneur and philanthropist. She has used her fame and platform to do a lot of good for the world. She has raised money for childhood literacy, educational programs and environmental conservation, among other initiatives. She inspires me to see the bigger picture in the meaning of work and success.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
My dad, who is very wise, always told me not to wait for someone to ask you to do something. Instead, anticipate what needs to be done and be proactive; it will take you far!
When you’re not working, where might we find you?
Probably out to eat at a new New York City restaurant, on a tennis court, or going for a walk and exploring my new neighborhood.
