Q. What is your lucky number?
A. My favorite number is seven because I have seven members in my family. But I like all numbers – especially the ones with dollar signs in front of them.
Q. As the financial officer at the agency, do you feel a part of the creative process of Celtic ?
A. Yes. I can walk around the office, talk with teams and be a part of every project, not just on the financial side. Celtic does a good job involving everyone and hearing all opinions - so anyone can feel a part of the creative process.
Q. As the CFO and HR head, how do you remain balanced and on top of all responsibilities?
A: It's like having twins whichever cries the loudest is the one that gets the most attention. Different times of the year dictate what project need more attention but multi-tasking is definitely one of my strong suits.
Q: When unwinding, what is your favorite thing to read?
A: I love to read everything. I'm not a book club member but I love good book recommendations especially fiction. Whether it's in a magazine or a book I like to know the story has personally touched someone and then I have to read it.
