Sr. Director of VIP Experience, Retention, and Operations for the Boston Celtics
What advice would you give to a girl graduating from Williston today?
Remember that finding your passion is a matter of pushing yourself to continue to learn. Be intellectually curious and ask questions!
I have found that pushing myself to learn and understand the several segments of the business and industry I choose to work in has allowed me to grow in ways that I could not have imagined. It has led me to a role that not only highlights my strengths, but continues to challenge me each and every day.
What do you think is next for women in your professional field?
I look forward to seeing more women in executive roles—specifically Team Presidents.
I was hired at 22 years old by a woman and was fortunate to be surrounded by an extremely impressive and supportive group of women throughout the Boston Celtics organization. They have continued to be an immense part of my growth and career over the past 10 years.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
To remember that one day, when you lead your own team, you will remember the things you loved about your previous managers, and the things you may not have loved, and you will have an opportunity to create your own management style and shape someone’s future. That responsibility is truly something special.
