- For you, what makes Lippincott a special place to work?
Fabulous people doing inspiring work.
- What’s your favorite place you’ve traveled to?
A small village called Winster in the beautiful surrounds of the Lake District in the UK.
I balance IQ with EQ and recognize that the best of strategies need to be applied pragmatically within complex organizations.
- What’s changed the least about the industry over the course of your career?
Great brands always have an authentic and uncompromising purpose for how they are moving the world forward.
- Which projects have been the most meaningful to you and why?
In 2013 my daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumor. My family and I experienced first hand the exhausting battle to come out the other side while some around us haven't been so lucky. I found a chance to give back by helping refresh the identity and messaging for Bear Necessities, a pediatric cancer charity that helps kids rediscover their childhood while they discover a cure for cancer. With only four percent of government medical research funding dedicated to Childrens’ cancer care, the work of Bear Necessities and other charities is essential.
