How has your college experience influenced your career at IDR?

During my time at Ole Miss, I was consistently busy between classes, work, dance practice, and sorority meetings/functions. Keeping up with that hectic scheduled absolutely prepared me for my time at IDR and has allowed me to easily keep up with multiple tasks at a time and to remember to stay calm, cool, and collected throughout the chaotic and challenging times.

I was also exposed to many different groups of people during my college experience which has helped me to continue to put an emphasis on creating connections and cultivating relationships. In addition to that, Ole Miss is the type of place that you find life-long friends who end up feeling like family and I feel the exact same way about IDR. It is an incredible feeling to work alongside people who you care about and respect both personally and professionally and to know that everyone is invested in each other’s success and to helping IDR grow.

What is your favorite season?

Probably Spring! I like the times of the year where it’s not too hot and not too cold. All you need is a light jacket! That is a quote from a movie, but it is accurate of how I truly feel. (Bonus points for anyone who knows where this reference is from!)

Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what is it?

I recently got Violin Lessons as a Christmas gift so give me a year or so to practice and then ask me this question again!

What was the last picture you took on your phone? 

A picture of my French Bulldog, Asher. I have absolutely turned into an annoying dog mom and am not ashamed.

What’s your biggest Pet Peeve?

When I let someone merge when driving and they don’t wave at me to say thanks. Drives me crazy!

No one knows this about me….

I am a dual Citizen! Most people at IDR know this, but for those reading this they probably do not. I was born in Canada and my entire family besides me and my 2 sisters still live there. I became a US Citizen in 2015 while working at IDR. My colleagues in the Nashville office used to quiz me during lunch the weeks leading up to my interview/test.
