|EDUCATION||University of Wisconsin-Madison (BS), Northwestern University (MBA)|
|PROFESSIONAL EVOLUTION||When I transitioned to Florida, I accepted a job with an investment bank, and I ended up being fired within the first nine months. Free to do whatever I wanted, I decided to start my own company. As I reflected on that decision, I learned that being fired is not an embarrassing situation that limits a person’s potential, rather it frees a person and opens the door to new possibilities.|
|CHALLENGE||This past February, three of my friends and I adopted a 28-day, plant-based cleanse. The best part of the process was the 14 pounds that I lost!|
