What do you love about what you do?
The connections that are made. Getting to work in so many different roles has given me the chance to connect with so many incredible people from around the world. I am a people person, and the way this organization brings people together is what I love most about my time with LiveDifferent. Life is about people, of course.
It’s karaoke night and you have no choice but to perform. What song would you choose and why?
I love a good Karaoke night. It would probably end up being a famous Broadway song or a really classic pop ballad like “My Heart Will Go On” or “Total Eclipse of the Heart”.
