- What gets you up in the morning? No, not your dog or alarm….but what really drives you to get up and give your best each day?
My old high school’s motto is “Age Quod Agis” meaning “Whatever you do, do it to the best of your ability.” I try to take that stance with everything I do, regardless of how small the task is or whether it’s in my home or work life. So that at the end of the day no matter the outcome, I know I tried my best and that gives me peace of mind.
- What makes Sutherland stand out from your previous employer(s)?
I love the fact that Sutherland gives back to the community and seeks ways to develop and empower young people. Examples are the Career Training Center internship and the Microsoft digital literacy programs.
- What do you love most about your role at Sutherland?
The thing I love most about my job is that I get to contribute to a positive change in someone’s life. When you are unemployed with responsibilities and you get that phone call from a potential employer, it’s such a great feeling.
- Which country that Sutherland operates in would you most like to visit and why?
I would like to visit Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. It has a rich combination of unique and luxurious architecture and natural beauty that I would love to explore!
- What’s the best advice you’ve ever received at work or in life?
The best advice I’ve ever received can be both applied at work and in life. It is to always treat people you meet with love and respect. You never know where you may see them again in the future or whom they may turn out to be.
- What do you do outside of work?
Outside of work, I spend time with my children playing and watching animated movies on the weekend.
- If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
It would be the ability to teleport!!
