YPG member profile

 

What's your favorite part of your job? 
My favorite part of my job is the flexibility and the constant learning. Every client and job is different which makes my daily work feel less routine and more enjoyable.

How did you get involved in YPG? 
I got involved in YPG because Wipfli’s previous captain was awesome at communicating events and making them sound like fun (which of course, they are). After attending a few YPG events it came up that it was time for a new captain to take over and I volunteered!

What advice do you have for other young professionals?
Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and reach out to meet new people! Get involved in anyway you can within your firm or company because the more you give, the more you’ll end up getting out of your career.

If you could have any superpower what would it be? 
If I could have one superpower it would be to teleport. I’m not the biggest fan of driving or the amount of time it takes to travel so cutting that out would be awesome, not to mention a lot cheaper.

Who is your role model? 
Not to sound cliché, but my parents really are my role models. They’re the most unselfish and giving people I know and I’m incredibly lucky to have grown up in such a loving home.

What do you do for fun? 
I wish I could say I have some really cool hobby that I do for fun but I unfortunately don’t. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and being as close to water as possible!

What is the most interesting thing you've learned in life so far? 
The most interesting thing I’ve learned in my life so far is that the people who think they know the most, are usually the ones who know the least. For example, me in my teenage years
