VP of Talent
Born and raised in the Dallas suburbs, I journeyed all the way down 75 to complete my undergraduate and graduate studies in Accounting at Southern Methodist University. As a student, I also juggled a part-time job working with KIND Healthy Snacks as their brand ambassador, where I quickly discovered how much I enjoyed breaking boundaries, building relationships, and staying active.
Still, I wanted to see for myself what the Big 4 life was like, and I started in Deloitte’s audit practice in Dallas for two years before transferring to the Houston office, where I stayed another year. Beyond the technical accounting and audit skills I absorbed, my time in public accounting taught me the importance of communication, how to become a morning person (which says A LOT as a natural night owl), and above all, how much I really enjoyed developing personal relationships. Energized with this mindset, I joined embark where I am be able to do just that –connect with people, learn about what excites them and gets them out of bed each morning, and share all the amazing things we’re up to here at embark as we continue to grow.
A self-proclaimed novice and foodie, I’m always on the lookout to visit a new fitness studio, restaurant, or city. While I’m always down for the next great adventure, I also find the most joy spending time with friends and family, wherever it may be. GO MAVS
