You can snap your fingers and instantly learn any skill. What is it?
Remembering names. I hate that feeling I get when I can’t remember someone’s name. I’d take that skill in a heartbeat!
What is objectively the best TV show out there? How about movies?
TV: This Is Us
Movie: Happy Gilmore
You’re at a bar. What are you ordering?
Tito’s, soda with a splash of cran and a lime. Simple and super refreshing!
Read any good books or discover any podcasts?
Shoe Dog. It’s a memoir of Phil Knight, the founder of Nike. It’s inspiring to read the back stories of people who are successful. I would have never guessed he was on the brink of bankruptcy so many times before Nike exploded. It just goes to show that the only way to fail is to quit. Keep showing up, and you will accomplish your dream!
What advice do you have for younger professionals?
Get out there and start building your network. Those connections will last a lifetime and open doors you didn’t even know existed. Your network is your net worth!
What’s your favorite part of living in Lincoln?
The people. Plus, an awesome trail system — walks and bike rides are amazing here!
