One of my favorite things is finding and developing top talent, AKA unicorns. I’ve had the good fortune of discovering and training numerous unicorns throughout my career. Sometimes I helped prepare them for leadership roles, and sometimes different roles were better suited for their skillset, but every single one of them made me proud to be part of their journey.

If you look hard enough, you’ll find them too.
