I have over 20 years of experience in Operations Management, Sales & Sales Management and Sales Training with a startup (Palindrome) that grew into a $2b a year company (VERITAS Software). I graduated Magna Cum Laude from DePaul in March of 2015 with a BA in Transformational Leadership in Business, Entrepreneurship and Society. I have a true passion and vision about what I see PiN being now and in the future.
My personal life is a mix of overcoming deficits and triumphs. I was born with cerebral palsy that affects my entire right side. I had not deterred my ability to do most things, including sports. It turned out to be a silver lining. I was forced to become left-handed and in the process, developed my right-side of my brain (the creative side) more than it might normally had developed. I am as adept at logic and being artistic as a result. I played in a few bands in my youth, and even graduated from Chicago's Second City Improv and Writing programs.
I took the Meyers Briggs Type Indicator test at DePaul University’s Career Workshop and was found to be an ENTJ which is the rarest of all types in the USA representing less than 5% of the population.
“The ENTJ personality is a natural born leader with a strong desire to create order within an organization. They make decisions quickly, are very career-focused, and fit well into the corporate world. Since they like to be in charge and need to be in charge to take advantage of their exception leadership skills, the ENTJ is usually successful in the business world. Ideally, ENTJs should choose a career that allows them to creatively solve problems and enforce structure. Assertive and outspoken - they are driven to lead. Excellent ability to understand difficult organizational problems and create solid solutions. Intelligent and well-informed, they usually excel at public speaking. They value knowledge and competence, and usually have little patience with inefficiency or disorganization”.
My focus is now on creating, developing and growing PiN into a company that will do good by all who touch it.
