What do you enjoy the most about your current position?
There are so many things I enjoy about my job, but as a designer, I love taking someone’s vision and idea for a graphic and turning that into a reality for them.
What is the one thing you would do if you knew you could not fail?
I want to coach volleyball, and have it fit cohesively into my current life. Currently, I would not be able to give enough time and effort into a volleyball program to be successful as a coach.
How has YPF contributed to your personal and/or professional development?
I am introverted by nature so YPF has helped me branch out in a new community where I knew no one when I moved here.
Who or what is your source of professional inspiration?
For design work, I follow multiple design-based Instagram accounts so that I can see what other professionals are doing around the world.
In keeping with YPF’s theme for this year, “Say Yes,” when is a time that you “said yes” that has had an impact on your personal or professional life?
I “say yes” all of the time at work! I have been in my position for less than a year, and I am doing projects that I never expected to be doing already, but I got the opportunities because I say yes and take on the challenge when it’s presented to me.
What is your favorite thing to do in the Fond du Lac area?
I enjoy participating in volleyball leagues and tournaments in the area.
What words of wisdom do you have for other young professionals working in Fond du Lac?
Find a job that excites you! When you are excited to do the work that you do, you are happier, healthier and you build better relationships.
