What do you really do at work?
I was hired initially as a contract employee to assist with the development and operations of a new open-access publishing platform, Aperture, powered by the Organization for Human Brain Mapping. However, I was offered the opportunity to work full time for Global Management Partners and work with both the Organization for Human Brain Mapping and the Association of University Professors of Neurology.

On any given day you can find me working with the Aperture editorial team, authors, and Committee members to ensure that Aperture’s submission, review, and publishing operations run smoothly.

For the Association of University Professors of Neurology, I have the great pleasure of assisting with their educational programming including virtual workshops. I also help with the day-to-day operations of the association.

Describe your Perfect Day.
Is there such a thing? Life, work, and relationships are messy. The best way to deal with the reality that life will always be a little chaotic is to ensure that I’m as prepared as possible to weather any storm. A perfect day for me is taking what comes my way, having the coping skills to stay calm and focused, allowing for mistakes if they happen and learning from them, not letting stress get in the way of seeing the positive, having the strength and courage to stay vulnerable and having the faith and confidence in myself to allow for success.

A perfect day outside of work on the other hand would include a show at the Guthrie or another theater, a little nature therapy, and a good book.


What’s your Superpower?
Versatility. I like the challenge of taking on new projects and learning new skills and insights.

What’s your life motto?
If you ask me what I came into this life to do, I will tell you: I came to live out loud.

--Emile Zola

What inspires you?
I get inspiration from nature, taking time to recenter outside of the bustle of the day-to-day at the office. People who are also fearless in their authenticity, empathy, and who dare to move outside of their comfort zones to connect and grow also inspire me.
