What inspires you?
So many people and so many things. My father inspires me for his wisdom and never ending patience for life and creativity. My partner inspires me for his unwavering belief in celebrating the everday little things. My daughter inspires me for her ability to see people and life exactly as it is right now.
What relationship has been most influential in your life?
In all honesty, I think it may be my relationship with myself in recent years. The evolution of my own self empathy. The ability to understand my purpose and talents and step into them with confidence and conviction has shifted my work, my impact and my passion. This is creating immense amounts of happiness in both my leadership work and my life, and every day I see the momentum in others around me. The deeper that relationship with self empathy becomes, the further my passion expands and my ability to empathize and connect with others.
