"When facing an obstacle at work (or in life), there's no better way to handle it than facing it head-on. Don't think too much. You will create a problem that was not even there in the first place."

What is your favorite thing about working at Precursor?

My team would be at the top of the list. We're only a small team but I like the way we work together. The other people at Precursor and the working environment are tied for second place.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I have grown taller since I started working at Precursor! If that's what you're asking! Hahaha!

What do you think are your strongest traits?

I like to say that my strongest trait is being reliable. I would even push to say that even my teammates and colleagues would agree and think of me that way as well.

What do you like to do when you are not working?

I am pretty much a simple and chill person. I honestly like doing nothing. Hahaha! But occasionally, if I am in the mood, I would go shopping or just chill at a cafe. 

What would you do (for a career) if you weren't doing this?

I like kids, so I would probably would be teaching young children in preschools if I was not doing this. Alternatively, I might even do interior design.

Give three qualities that best describe you.  

Friendly, Thorough, and Trustworthy.

What is something that you could have told your younger self if given the chance?

"Whatever dreams you have, chase it and make it happen!"

What do you like most about your job?

That feeling when I can help a client manage and resolve problems that occur when there are "changes to their company", and they are grateful that you were able to assist them --That, for me, is what I like most about my job.

What is your usual source of inspiration when you tackle a difficult problem ahead?

No inspiration for me, really. I like to think that when facing an obstacle at work (or in life), there is no better way to handle it than facing it head-on. Don't think too much. You will create a problem that was not even there in the first place.

What's a fun fact about you that many people may not know?

I am sure that I am not alone in this, but I share a bed with my dog every night. 

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

Time-travel! Being able to go back in the past would be a really cool superpower to have. 

What is your personal philosophy? Or a motto in life/career that you follow close to your heart?

Being satisfied with whatever I have and cherishing the people around me.
