- Which projects have been the most meaningful to you and why?
Projects where I have been able to change the client's way of making decisions and doing that at scale have been the most meaningful. For example, I was part of a project where we fundamentally changed how all 507 engineers and scientists did their work. Watching the entire organization be more efficient and happier was a great feeling.
- If you weren’t in this profession, what would you be?
Designing golf courses. I rarely play, but I love gardening at scale.
- What’s your happy place?
A hot cup of coffee at 5 a.m.
- What’s changed the most about the industry?
Being smart is no longer a differentiator. Being good at "one thing" is far less valuable today than before.
- For you, what makes Lippincott a special place to work?
I appreciate our balance of creativity with problem solving.
