Why PAIRIN? As a child with learning differences, I relied heavily on soft skills like determination, resiliency, interpersonal skills and creativity to succeed. Just as soft skills helped me break down barriers, I am passionate about helping others access the resources to develop their own soft skills in order to gain more opportunities. Every day I am grateful to be apart of PAIRIN, I'm passionate about the impact we are making, inspired and challenged by my teammates and I love my role within the company.
Who/what has been your greatest teacher? Courage. Every time I have had the courage to explore a new place, learn a new skill, start a company, have a tough conversation or reach out to a stranger, I have learned more than I could have imagined.
Things you love: Exploring: I love seeing the world, put me on a plane to a new place with some friends and I am in heaven. Mountains: particularly hiking them with my dog. Of course, my dog. Games: board games, floor hockey games, tennis games, games I make up. Lake Sebago: where fun is endless. And chocolate milk.
