How important has mentorship been throughout your career? 

“I’m fortunate to have had two wonderful mentors in my career – one came early on when I didn’t really know what I wanted to do professionally – and one more recently. What they have in common is that they both offered me the freedom and flexibility to take my career in any direction I wanted, and to take on as much responsibility as I was willing to handle. I think both recognized a strong work ethic in me, instilled by my parents, and encouraged me to learn and give as much as I could, at various points in my career. Mentorship has been essential to my professional growth.”
