“I love that I genuinely get to help others find their dream career. Outside of the office I trade my office chair for a golf cart – catch me out on the course! In the winter you can find me skiing down the slopes in some fresh powder. When I’m not shredding slopes or sinking putts, I’ve got my passport in hand and ready to travel the world!”
