Activities you enjoy outside of work: I love to travel, spend time with family and friends, reading and occasionally visiting a celeb gossip site. Also, I joined the Junior League of Memphis and I’ve had the opportunity to participate in several amazing charity projects including “Kids in the Kitchen” and the Memphis Symphony Orchestra “Reading the Music” program.
What talent do you wish you had? Ballet! I took lessons for a year or two when I was much younger. I really wish I would’ve stuck with it. Perhaps by now, I’d be finishing up at Julliard and prepping for my debut in “A Midsummer’s Night Dream.”
Who has had the biggest influence on you? My parents have both been phenomenally influential forces. My father taught me the importance of inclusion, transparency and embracing people you might never otherwise learn about. He also stressed the value of finding a balance – working diligently, building relationships and striving to have a fulfilling professional and social life. My mother taught me the importance of faith, poise and confidence.
How do you plan to help further the vision of Leadership Memphis? … My main responsibility is to ensure that our marketing, communications and branding efforts are strategically aligned, and the Memphis community clearly comprehends our overall vision.
