3 Questions

What sort of disruption has happened in your career that has spurred personal and professional growth?

I was beginning my career in healthcare when Medicare and Medicaid changed their regulations. Those changes determined the trajectory of the first decade of my career and ultimately taught me how to pivot in order to adapt and evolve. I learned that success is tantamount to lifelong learning.

What does human agility mean to you?

The ability to adapt to ever-changing market conditions.

What excites you the most when you think about the future of work?

I’ve always been virtual at RGP, and so the idea that companies are more and more adopting the idea of borderless talent is exciting to me. It puts control in the hands of the worker, and gives people the power to say when, how and where they want to work.
