Favorite Activities Outside of Work
Hiking is a passion. (Laughing) You will not see me run or get on a treadmill, but I love nature! Most of my weekends will be consumed with exploring Utah’s hiking trails. I also enjoy photography and reading.
Favorite Leadership Book
“The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business” by Charles Duhigg
This book is very significant to me in my world of technical operations. The premise of the book is to discover your why—what’s your routine and what can you do differently in order to achieve a different outcome?
