What are your favorite books/movies?
The Happiness Hypothesis by Jonathan Haidt, Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. The Godfather (1&2).
Where have you traveled and where would you still like to go?
I have so much left to discover in our beautiful country, starting with my (now) home state of Colorado. I’ve climbed about 10 of our 58 14ers, so continuing to tackle those and, in doing so, visiting many of Colorado’s small mountain towns, will keep me busy for a while.
What is the one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
I’m an introvert. It works in Executive Search– I love to listen first and foremost, then speak.
