Who is someone you admire?
My Dad is my biggest fan and my role model. He is incredibly supportive, always teaching my siblings and me about life lessons he has learned. We do not always agree, but he is always in my corner.
Have you visited an excellent museum?
I visited the Museum of Modern Art on both of my trips to San Francisco. I love it there. In 2017, I saw Ragnar Kjartansson’s, The Visitors, a 360⁰ audio/video presentation. I highly recommend looking it up on the internet, although I imagine it will pale compared to the immersive experience of seeing it live. I will never forget it. In 2019, I saw the Andy Warhol exhibit. Again, it was fantastic to see the original art that I had only seen replicated or online.
What is one of the best pieces of advice you have received?
“Aim to make a life, not a living.” I live by this motto, which significantly contributed to my seeking employment at Kaiser Consulting. Working for a firm with life/work balance in an industry where 60+ hour work weeks are typical is nothing short of life changing.
