What inspired you to get into your industry?
I actually got into the payroll industry when I was selling long distance services toward the beginning of my career. My manager moved to a national payroll services company and I wanted to continue working with him so I went too.
How do you encourage growth and development within your company?
Empowering others to inspire each other to take risks. Walking the talk.

A public speaker to encourage others to overcome their own challenges. That is something I do periodically and actually might be something I will pursue in the future.

Don’t take no for an answer or let anyone tell you something is impossible. See challenges as opportunities.

Save for a rainy day.
