What misconception or stereotype of your generation drives you the craziest?
Millennial stereotypes drive me crazy! There’s often a perception that millennials tend to be entitled, slackers, high-maintenance, job hopping employees. Most stereotypes that are associated with millennial employees just aren’t true, and our work ethic and career goals aren’t very different from those of other generations.
What is the most exciting thing about working in this industry?
I’m fortunate that I always get to work on something new and exciting. From puppies, to sharks or Say Yes to the Prom no two days are ever the same!
Who has been your biggest mentor and why?
Sheryl Sandberg, although she doesn’t quite know that. She’s inspiring, influential and most of all so empowering. She’s is a role model for women in more ways than one, and I admire her for her passion for women in the workplace.
