How do you “Have Fun Working Hard®”?
I Have Fun Working Hard by spending time with my team! We love joking, bursting into spontaneous songs or dances, solving tricky problems, and being together. I might be biased, but they are the best.

What is your favorite way to get involved at ALKU?
There are many ways to get involved outside of your day-to-day job at ALKU, which is one of the many reasons I love working here. My favorite way in recent years has been sitting on the DEI council. Helping make a change at ALKU motivates me, and I hope it empowers my team to do the same!

What is your day-to-day life like outside of ALKU?
When I’m not working, I spend time with my dog, June, friends, and family!
