Your favorite part of working at Bold Insight

The culture at Bold Insight is like nothing I have ever experienced. Words cannot describe the learning opportunities, support, generosity, respect and laughter that fills the office on a daily basis. My favorite part is simply having the opportunity to work with such amazing people.

In your spare time you would absolutely do this:

I’d be sitting in a small venue listening to live music, preferably Amos Lee, Martin Sexton, Bob Schneider or any singer-songwriter.

How long have you been in the UX field?

3 years

Your favorite city in the world is...and why?

Chicago because it’s where my family and friends are.

Your ultimate celebrity dinner party guest list would include:

The entire cast of Impractical Jokers.

Long-term personal or professional goal?

Personal: I’d like to run one more marathon by the time I’m 50. And, do a triathlon with my mom and 2 daughters.  Professional: I’d like to continue to enhance my skills and knowledge in this industry. I also want to be able to type as fast as Kate H!!!

Any other facts to share?

My laugh is loud and obnoxious!!! And, I can’t dance or sing (although deep down I think I can do both).
