What industry do you come from (previous from Brilliant Muse)?
I started working in the nonprofit sector as soon as I graduated college and was with the same company for 7 years. I definitely learned a lot during my time there and had the opportunity to be involved with some incredible projects for the community. It was challenging work but also very fulfilling!
What was your first job?
My first job was helping my aunt at her escrow office during my summer breaks when I was younger. I was responsible for filing, back when digital files were not a thing and everything was on paper. I attribute my organizational skills coming to fruition at this time of my life!
What attracted you to Brilliant Muse?
I knew I wanted to be part of the Brilliant Muse team upon learning about the flexibility of working remotely, the culture and importance of your well-being, as well as the support among the team! I was at my previous job for 7 years so making a new change was definitely scary at first but I have had ZERO regrets since! It has been one of the best decisions I could have made for myself! I am so grateful to be a Muser and to be part of such an incredible team!
What do you like to do outside of work?
I LOVE live music so I prioritize going to concerts in my spare time. I also am grateful for opportunities to move my body when I can, whether it is going for walks, hiking, stretching, spin, strength training, or Pilates! By having a flexible schedule, I am able to prioritize my health and wellness in ways I never was able to before. Not having to commute to work provides more time in my day to focus energy on things for myself I was previously neglecting. I feel much healthier and happier both physically and mentally!
How have you grown as a person because of making this shift in your career?
I constantly feel challenged in my day to day, in the best ways possible. I feel like I am always learning new things and continuing to grow in my role as well as a person. I also get to work with amazing and innovative people who continuously inspire and uplift me!
