What inspires your leadership approach?

My personal goal has always been to look for ways to improve myself and not do things because “it has always been done that way in the past.” It is important to find the balance of reaching outside of your comfort zone while not taking unnecessary risks. My mentors have taught me that different people have diverse ways of doing things and it is important to listen, encourage innovation, inspire and believe in a vision while accepting that we are in a shared relationship—all of which leads to success.

How would you define a Champion of Change?

A Champion of Change looks to make a difference and not just survive another day. We foster teamwork, inspire and motivate others to respond to market changes while moving our organization forward. Change and innovation are an interwoven approach leading to more efficiencies and better outcomes.
