What do you consider your strengths?
I bring a strong scientific understanding and expertise to the company and to my clients. I’ve gotten to work with different clients across many different contexts, business environments, and types of engagements, and I think I have the ability to facilitate discussions and problem-solving in diverse contexts.
I pair this with a lot of what I learned from playing competitive team sports while growing up. Structure, attention to detail, teamwork, success in the face of a competitive environment, working under pressure, these are all elements that I’ve had to contend with for quite a few years now and they’re extremely important when working in an environment like ours. My ability to manage these helps me succeed in what I do and help me to articulate and problem solve in collaborative fashions. I also consider myself to be very resilient – I’m not a native English speaker, and this was a word I learned after joining Deallus. It really resonated with me and is another element that has shaped how I work and how I lead others.
Life outside of work
I spend a lot of time with friends and family around a dinner table. I’m not going to lie and say I cook… I prefer to bring the wine and watch others make the meal happen. I used to do a lot of sports and coaching – skiing especially. I still do these things, but less often. But given there are only so many hours in the day, I try to make the most of my time by spending it with people that I care about.
