What is something you’ve learned in the last year, industry related or not? The power of collaboration. I never realized how important it is until I became an entrepreneur and I couldn’t walk to the next cubicle to get it.
What challenges do you face and how do you overcome them? My biggest challenge is determining how to have the greatest impact to support the greatest number of people on being their greatest self.

What’s the best advice you’ve received? Go M.A.D. Make a difference.

What is something you can’t live without? Peanut M&M’s. And friends – the real “laugh until you cry” sort of friends.
What’s the best concert or show you’ve ever attended? New Kids on the Block with Boys to Men as the opening act. This has more to do with the company of two very special nieces I chauffeured to Alpine Valley for their first concert in 1992. Our New Kids on the Block reunions are the best.
What’s your favorite food? Peanut M&M’s. Is that a food? Yup, I can make a whole meal out of them.
