What inspired you to follow this career path?

The desire for a change, to keep growing, and to leverage the years of training I’ve had, all leading to a desire to make a difference in a company looking for that type of transformation.

How is the L&D space changing?

People today are looking for learning that is truly just in time, easily accessed and referenced, and specific resources at your fingertips – think “YouTube.” That’s for the “easy stuff.” For the “tougher stuff,” I believe people want mentoring, coaching, simulations – an opportunity for trial and error and a whole lot of feedback along the way. And they want to know you are invested in and investing in them!

Where can we find you when you’re not working?

Tomorrow I head for a Cruise along the Mediterranean and cannot wait. I LOVE to travel and explore the world and different cultures. And I am a people watcher all along the way. Additionally, spending time with my family and close friends is the most important thing to me. So when I can combine friends and family with amazing new experiences, it is heaven on earth!!

What are you looking forward to most at ExecConnect 2018?

Since it is my first conference, I am looking to learn and continue to sharpen my own tools; while also having the opportunity to share some of the wisdom I have learned along the way – hoping to help other attendees.
