Vice President of Global Strategic Alliances
What behavior or personality trait(s) do you most attribute your success to, and why?
Transparency, responsiveness, proactive communication and a true interest in others. I am innately interested in other people – their story, intentions, motivations and what made them into who they are today. Everyone is unique which makes life interesting.
What energizes you at work?
I am the most energized by seeing my team members and direct reports succeed. I also enjoy meeting new people and growing Headlands Research. I thrive in an environment that is high demand where I am expected to wear multiple hats, strategize and deliver a best-in-class work product.
What’s one or two things most people don’t know about you?
I am a marathon runner. I have run four marathons to date and was slated to run my fifth in Paris (April 2020) but unfortunately was thwarted by COVID. I am extrovert that recharges similar to an introvert so perhaps an ambivert or omnivert?
What’s the best advice you were ever given?
What’s one item you can’t leave your house or apartment without?
Besides a mask? On a day-to-day basis, I am very low maintenance. I am often teased about the lack of items I carry around with me as I prefer to get up and go. When I’m running around with the kids, I always have a “real-live” snack for them. What is a “real live snack” you ask? This is classified as anything containing carbs per my 6-year-old son.
If you could choose a superpower, what would it be?
Hands down - I would choose the ability to “teleport.” Not only would I be able to visit interesting and hard to reach destinations within the blink of an eye, but I would be able to escape danger easily. My only caveat would be that I’d be able to “teleport” others along with me!
