Where are you originally from?

Born in Laguna Hills, California. Raised in Whitehouse Station, New Jersey.


Who inspires you?

My great-grandmother Betty is someone who inspires me. Barely escaping Nazi Germany to come to America and build a life for herself, she was the embodiment of bravery and courage. A successful career, a wonderful family, a lifetime of adventure and living to 102. Without her escape, generations may not be here today.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Sports Broadcaster/Analyst

Where is your dream vacation destination?

Europe. I was supposed to study abroad in Portugal last year, but it was cancelled due to the pandemic. One day, I will make my way to Europe and see all of its beauty and the wonders it has to offer!

How did you come to find yourself at LaunchTech?

Connections. Connections. Connections. I was introduced to someone who introduced me to Kate. A few months later, here I am. Kids, when you get older and everyone tells you to make connections and talk to people, listen to them. It really does help!

What do you find most interesting about cybersecurity or technology?

The cybersecurity and technology fields are always evolving. It is interesting to keep learning about new ideas that pop up and discovering the ways in which they impact society. It has also opened my eyes to all of the dangers out there and made me realize that I need to be more aware and careful.
