Tell us about yourself in one sentence.

I consider myself a mission-driven world traveler who's more comfortable surrounded by people that are different than me.

What excites you most about CIC?

Your career path, no matter how non-traditional or jagged, will not only be welcome at CIC, it will become a highlighted strength of yours.

What's the most interesting conversation you've ever had with a CIC client?

On the same day, I learned about nutraceuticals that are helping patients with Alzheimers, and then with another client discussed their geospatial data capabilities that are monitoring migration patterns between Venezuela and Colombia. Never a dull day.

How does working at CIC differ from other jobs you've had?

Everyone's voices carry more weight at CIC, regardless of title. Your input is truly valued, listened to, and has the ability to make change.

I can actually see the results of my work in my local community on a daily basis. Jobs are being created faster, connections are made easier, barriers are broken down and access is enabled because of the work that we're doing. It's powerful, it takes a village, but you get so much back in return.

What do you like to do in your free time?

When I'm not at CIC, I'm trying my best to travel the world. You can often find me working out of one of our global CIC locations, or participating in cross-cultural learning experiences throughout the world, and sometimes in my own backyard of Miami.

Can you tell us about your team and how you work together?

My team has become my family. We have gone through some amazing personal and professional challenges together and became stronger for it. I can no longer imagine working without such a dedicated, connected team.
