How long have you been a member of ATD Hawkeye Chapter? I’ve officially been a member for approximately 6 months, but I did attend a few events prior to obtaining membership.
What do you enjoy most about your ATD Hawkeye Chapter membership? I enjoy collaborating with other professionals that are passionate both about learning and helping others!
What piece of advice related to talent and development has made a significant impact on you and your work? Some of the best advice I have received is to ask the right questions to gain understanding of the root cause of a problem. As a helper by nature, it can sometimes be difficult to accept that some issues are not “training” issues at all.
What is your favorite part of the learning and development field? I absolutely love the “NOW I GET IT” moment that occurs during a training session. When I’ve successfully connected the dots for someone and the light bulb glows bright, I can’t think of a more gratifying feeling.
What are your hobbies or favorite things to do with your time? I enjoy basketball, performing solo acoustic shows, and running.
