So what do you DO at Alight? 

I make sure things run smoothly in the office. From employee onboarding to planning company events, I’m here for it all!

What did you do before you came to Alight? 

I worked that retail life. I studied marketing and diamond grading, and I eventually helped a jewelry store buy diamonds.

What do you do when you aren’t at work? 

Definitely soaking up time with friends and family, working on house projects or being the guinea pig for all the things my husband creates in the kitchen.

People might be surprised to learn that you … 

Had an Etsy shop for cross-stitching during college.

What’s your favorite snack?

Toss up between a mango with salt and Lay’s original with French onion dip.

What’s your favorite piece of advice?

“Bite your tongue when your opinion doesn’t add value. Everything you think doesn’t need to be said, and some things just aren’t helpful.” — Nedra Glover Tawwab, author and relationship expert

“Don’t be intimidated by what you don’t know. That can be your greatest strength and ensure that you do things differently from everyone else.” — Sara Blakely, Spanx founder

What are your favorite movies?

Ooh, tough one! I love “Inception.” I’m obsessed with finding out everyone’s opinion and theory about it.

Rainy day vibe: the Harry Potter series, “Looper,” “Grand Budapest Hotel”
Thanksgiving: “Planes, Trains & Automobiles” 
Christmas: “The Muppet Christmas Carol”

If you could only listen to one musician or band for the rest of your life, who would it be? 

If it’s a single musician, either Beyonce or Billy Joel.

If it’s a band, then Taking Back Sunday — long live emo!
