Without a doubt, a park ranger in Yellowstone. I love being outdoors, whether it be fishing, hiking, or canoeing. A bucket list item for me is to visit all the national parks with our kids once they are old enough to hike more than a half mile before being carried!
To find a mentor, or maybe even two! So much of my growth and success is attributable to the leadership and guidance I’ve been exposed to throughout my career. Although college helps to prepare us for our careers, the learning and growth we experience while on the job can really set you apart.
The “family feel”. I love working for a firm that truly cares for the well-being of its employees. I’ve shared many personal milestones from weddings, children, etc. with my WG peers, and have developed lifelong friendships.
A relationship that is mutually beneficial to both the client and our firm. Being able to provide a benefit to a client while having the client value the service and input provided is one of the most rewarding professional experiences that I can ask for.
