Hometown: Pittsburgh, PA
What makes you the best person for your role?
Having worked at Innovation Works for over 15 years, I have accumulated a wealth of knowledge on all aspects of HR and accounting within our organization. I started part-time as an Accountant focusing on accounts payable, but quickly added on other responsibilities. In 2016 I went full time and I have continued to add onto my responsibilities. I have recently been promoted to Accounting Manager. With all the skills and knowledge I have accumulated over the years I am excited for any challenges that may come my way.
What is your favorite thing about working with startups?
I love being a part of a companies infancy and watching them grow.
What do you love about living and working in Pittsburgh?
The people. Pittsburgh folks are passionate, caring, friendly, and fun people to be around. Also, there is so much to do in Pittsburgh. I have lived here all my life and still find places that I did not know existed. (For example: Fountain of Youth, North Park, Pgh, PA)
Where can we find you outside of work?
Most likely walking my Labrador Retriever somewhere. My husband and I walk our neighborhood or we take her to local parks where she loves to swim in the creeks and lakes. Our favorite parks are North Park and Blueberry Hill Park.
