Toughest Challenge: This past year has challenged us in many previously unforeseen ways. I led a team that was responsible for quickly transitioning the firm to a remote working environment and developing myriad safety and travel protocols across our offices with only a few days notice.
Important Lesson Learned: Early in my career, I witnessed the incredibly positive impact leaders can have on building a cohesive and motivated team.
What I’d Tell 16-Year-Old Me: The same thing I told my now young adult kids — make sure you pursue a career in an area that you find stimulating and for which you have a passion.
