Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I currently live in St. Louis in a self-rehabbed brick bungalow with my family, and I spend my time rediscovering the world with my kiddo, reading, cooking, gardening, and listening to music/making up my own interpretive dances in my living room that my cat critiques (his reviews are devastating).

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

I recently made the move from a Senior Relationship Manager with the Sales Team to the Community Lead at our 4240 location, and I'm really enjoying learning so much from the 4240 team! They have amazing camaraderie with each other, and balancing flipping offices with in-depth discussions about early 00's pop stars has been a ton of fun. Keeping this place running is hard work but my team makes it look like a breeze.

What's something about you that may surprise people?

My first job was at age 12, as an Arrow Technician and Vending Machine Restocker in my family’s archery range. I made $2.50 an hour plus snacks.

What's your favorite snack in the CIC kitchen?

Bridge mix. It’s a one-sided love/hate relationship.
