I hike. I eat yummy food. I truly love ice cream. I write and share stories and anecdotes. Talk! Connect with people. Accomplishments: get tasks done that make my team look good and effective at work, answer questions and empower people who need information, find myself handling situations with more maturity and kindness than in the past because I’m really trying to be a better person.
