Best business decision: “Working in experiential marketing allowed me to interact with so many different types of people and put smiles on their faces. Under high pressure and tight timelines, I discovered just what I was capable of accomplishing. One project was the 2002 Olympic Torch Relay just after 9/11, and I saw firsthand how our country came together as we managed our collective grief. I love these moments to be part of the community and make a difference in people’s lives.”
Worst business decision: “Staying at a company where the environment was toxic didn’t give me the opportunity to grow, but it taught me what I do and don’t want in a job.”
