What’s the coolest thing about your job?

The coolest thing about my job is the opportunity to work with a cross section of individuals representing different age groups, nationalities, and cultures. This collaboration encourages a variety of thought and ideas that lead to creative program management and problem solving.

What’s your favorite place of all the places you’ve travelled?

I spent several years of my young adult life living in West Africa. I would say that Senegal is my favorite place of all due to the welcoming nature of the Senegalese.
