I’m not sure what it is, but April makes us feel a bit more energetic than usual—maybe it’s the warmer weather, the plants coming back out or the vaccine rollout.

How do you prefer to start your workday?
I have to admit I am one of those people that takes my dogs to daycare almost every workday. After I do that, I drive to the root and listen to various news podcasts. After that, it is just chaos.
What’s something that has surprised you about your chosen career path?
Generally, my entire career path. I don’t even know if I could say chosen – more like the many evolutions of my career. I went into undergrad debating between majoring in biomedical engineering and art history, and ended up doing the former and working in a research lab.
But after graduation, I then happened to find myself doing corporate communications and investor relations in New York for a few years. Then I was doing freelance social media for small companies going through the IPO process.
And now, I am the director of a startup that mixes business consulting with HubSpot for legal tech companies. And I am getting my Masters in Business Analytics, because who needs sleep.
What’s a trip that has changed you, and why?
In 2019, I did a two-week solo hiking trip in Utah. This was right as I was transitioning between two parts of my life, and having a lot of questions. It was amazing to be out bouldering and rappelling (with trained professionals) and speaking with Shamans and all the other wonderful things Utah has to offer.
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A businesswoman in the city, or an archeologist in the middle of nowhere. I’ve tried option A, and didn’t love that. Maybe my next career step will be archeology.
Are you a dog person or a cat person (or neither)?
Dog person – I have two. But my mother and step-brother are very allergic to cats, so I have never really given them a fair chance.
If you could only eat one item for every meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Cold Kimchi and udon noodles, and a glass (or three) of dry sauvignon blanc. That is basically all I eat when it is hot outside.
What is one of your favorite things about being a member of the root coworking?
That answer has to be a tie between two things: getting out of my apartment, and being able to interact with other people (!). As someone that worked from home for several years even before the lockdown, I can’t tell you how nice that is.
Plus the iced coffee.
