I am also working on developing our next big service offering, "The Mastery Network", which will provide educational opportunities to businesses in all industries.

2. How did you arrive at Insperience Business Services?

I was introduced to the firm in 2014 through networking, and it turned out to be a good time for a new person to join the team!

Insperience was a perfect fit.

4. Is your blueprint for success based, in some way, on role models? If yes, can you name them?

I have many people that I look up to in my personal and professional life. Personally, I look up to my family and friends because they are always there for unconditional support and encouragement. Having your own personal cheerleader team is amazing! Professionally, I look up to the owner of our company, Sean Manning and my experienced colleagues. They are great at providing me with plenty of learning and mentorship moments. I also really enjoy inspirational and wisdom speakers such as Jim Rohn and Deepak Chopra.

5. What is your source of inspiration?

I believe my purpose in life is to constantly be learning and curious and to inspire this in others.
