As a project manager, every day is different but one theme is that I’m constantly collaborating. On a daily basis, I get to join forces with fellow PM’s, tech teams, and business areas to work on new and exciting projects. When my workday is done, I hit the gym then head home. It’s awesome working for a company that encourages work/life balance!

Empowerment requires you to truly listen to your team, give them autonomy while encouraging them, share the desired outcome of an initiative along with the why, be available for questions and then, move out of their way! I am astonished by the exceptional results the team provides when they are empowered.
