What’s your key to getting started in the morning? Coffee and walking my dog, Fernweh. Her energy is contagious & the fresh air is as necessary as the caffeine.
What is your favorite thing on your desk? A wrought-iron gyro globe, as it reminds me of how much work goes into making something incredible.
What’s the best thing about working remotely? The freedom to feed my mood. If I am feeling creative, I can sketch on my rooftop. If I am feeling super productive, I plant myself at central command (my desk) and embrace the flow.
What’s the toughest part of running your own business? Setting boundaries for balance. I pour myself into work and sometimes I forget to take breaks. Luckily, the puppy reminds me it is time to play.
What’s the most important part of company culture? Intersectional inclusion. Every individual at Digital Mountaineers- from Executives to contractors- brings something incredible to the table. We not only embrace diversity of every kind, we cultivate it.
Do you ever ditch the desk? Absolutely. A lot of the groundwork for Digital Mountaineers happened at that desk, however to keep the creative juices flowing, I need to be moving and changing my scenery.
Any hidden talents? I’m a Professional Organizer, which is a lot of work, yet oddly cathartic.
How do you relax? Cleaning vigorously & gardening. Followed by scented candles, cozy blankets, and a refreshing cocktail.
