EDUCATION Pacific Lutheran University (BS)
SOMETHING SURPRISING We spent 10 years in Singapore. Three of our four kids graduated from the Singapore American School.
FAVORITE PART OF LEADERSHIP At Office Depot, we have a 5C culture that we created as a team: Customer, Commitment, Change, Caring and Creativity. Each helps guide the strategic direction for our business. I enjoy seeing these 5Cs come to life and recognizing the associates in our organization who go above and beyond in embracing the culture.
