How long have you been a member at Worklab? 

AGC started at the end of July this year, but I went on Maternity leave shortly thereafter, so I consider my true “start date” to be mid-September 2018.

Favorite thing about working at Worklab:

I love the variety of meeting spaces, the outstanding hospitality, and the fact that I have a code to use the bathroom…I feel so cool every time I go.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Right now, my spare time is spent trying to keep a small human alive and I LOVE it. However, outside of that I love to spend time with friends, travel, and eat peanut butter.

What three business tips can you share with others?

  • You grow what you pay attention to.
  • “Clear is kind. Unclear is unkind.” – Brene Brown
  • Make yourself easy to work with – no one likes working with an asshole.

How do you define success?

Success is choosing to show-up (even when I’d rather shrink) and intentionally live out my values.

Tell us something that might surprise us about you.

I have an international marriage.  Almost 15 years ago I married my Northern Irish husband John (John Johnston…I know – it’s repetitive and a bit disappointing as far as an Irish last name goes…but I’m still crazy about him so it hasn’t caused too many problems. 😊)
