About Me

Work, however you define it, gives life meaning. I believe with the correct motivation, communication skills, and determination, you can do almost anything you set your mind to. Through my experiences, I hope to inspire others to believe that with these values that anyone can achieve their work and life goals.

My undergraduate degree is in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and I currently work for Genentech (a Member of the Roche Group) as Lead Quality Associate. I have always been drawn to leadership positions as I enjoy motivating others to reach their greatest potential. I recently received my MBA from the University of Nevada, Reno.

My free time is mostly spent training my border collie, Odin. The same motivation, communication, and determination skills/values used in my professional life are directly relatable to his training. These skills are my passion as they carry over and affect both my personal and professional life.

My husband and I adopted Odin in November of 2017 when he was 9 weeks old. Since then, my life has become a never ending adventure. Border Collies were bred to work and finding them a suitable job in suburbia can be difficult. Having sheep in your backyard is not really an option in suburbia, therefore finding them a suitable job is detrimental to both the dogs and your well being. When choosing a job or training, you need to ensure it is the correct motivation to make them want to work, use the correct type of communication while training, and have the determination to continue their training for the long haul.
