What is the most rewarding thing about your job/industry? Why?

Witnessing our team’s commitment to the children and families we serve. Our board of directors, investors, partners and stakeholders work together to enhance the emotional well-being of Utah’s children and families to help change the trajectory of their lives. It’s incredible to champion this life-changing mission.

What does success look like to you?

It’s a process, not an event. It’s seeing beyond “what is” to “what can be” and then engaging the right people at the right time to make those big dreams a reality. Developing high-performing teams is foundational. These teams are not satisfied with the status quo and have mutual trust and confidence to take calculated risks. Failing forward quickly is an important part of the equation.
