On a Lighter Note

Are there causes that you like to support? 
Education is a cause that is significant to me. I am an MBA Lecturer at The Ohio State University. I enjoy teaching accounting because I think it is an important subject to understand, and I work to make it exciting and less intimidating for the students.

What is one of the best pieces of advice you have received?
I have always liked this piece of advice: if you don’t like the result, then you are not finished.

Have you ever participated in a physically or mentally challenging activity?
Yes, in 2017, I earned my pilot's license. It was mentally challenging to learn the curriculum, to respond well under harsh conditions, to react to changes comfortably, and to make safety a priority with every move. Still, it was exciting and an accomplishment that makes me proud.
