“I’ve learned to embrace change. Change management doesn’t come natural to most of us and it is an area where I’ve grown a lot over the years. Our industry is nuanced and ever evolving. Change is a constant in my life, and I most enjoy driving and participating in transformational initiatives designed to improve the customer experience.”
