On the Horizon: I’m very excited about leading my firm’s workplace investigation and organizational assessment practice group. Over the last few years, the cultural and political climate has drastically shifted in the workplace.

Advice: Practice gratitude and recognize that happiness is a choice. I’m very intentional about being grateful every day for the great things in my life — both the big things and the small stuff.

Hobby/passion: I’m obsessed with coffee table books and collecting used coffee table books, which often have a great backstory. I also collect vinyl/album covers designed by Andy Warhol from all over the world. While on vacation in Berlin, I found a Rolling Stones album photographed by Warhol, but it’s written entirely in Russian.
