Here at Executive Elements, we like to feature fantastic women we think you should know. Some of these women are clients, some are friends, some are women we’ve only just met. But they all have this in common: they are dynamic, interesting women who have agreed to share with us their insights and secrets to success.
My Current Job/Company:
Training & Recruitment Coordinator/YWCA Columbus
I am responsible for managing our recruitment and hiring process as well as facilitating, organizing and supporting our program areas with training and professional development opportunities for all YWCA employees.
Serving others. Smiling. Making people feel valued and appreciated.
My parents (Mike & Eileen) live in Raleigh, NC, my older sister (Michele) lives in Richmond, VA. And my friends in Columbus are definitely my Ohio family!
My Hero or Heroes:
My mother. She’s the sweetest lady I know. I pray for half the patience and courage that she possesses.
Road trips. Backyard sitting with my friends. Ink.
My Pet Peeve:
Telling me I can’t do something. Because I will.
Netflix. Naps. Mexican food.
Just a southern girl living in the Midwest, just trying to save the world! I grew up in NC but moved to Ohio 5 years ago. Every now and then my southern accent comes out, y’all just have to pay attention!
Exciting. Hopeful. Unique.
My Favorite Quote:
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. –Eleanor Roosevelt
My Meredith College class ring. Everyone gets the same ring their Junior year of college. It’s a black oval onyx. I never take it off!
My advice to Young Women:
Take chances. Move away from home. Go on blind dates. Make mistakes. Have a few solid gal pals to encourage you and support you.
How I Balance it All:
My iPhone. Lists. Outlook Calendar. Me-time.
