Do you have any skills or talents that people don’t know about?
Most people don't know I was in customer service for about 10 years with gigs at Starbucks and CVS, which is a skill I use to this day.

What was your first job?
My first job was at CVS in 2010. I was there for 5 years before I switched to Starbucks, so I could learn all the secrets! I was there for another 5 years before coming to DC.

Who is someone you admire?
Political figure-wise, I admire former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley (R-SC) because of her approach to foreign policy and display of American toughness at the United Nations during her tenure. That really inspired me. Plus, as the child of immigrants, I can relate to her story as well.

If I were a superhero, my superpower would be…
My superpower would be the ability to read and change minds -- it would make politics a whole lot easier!

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is…
The best piece of advice I have ever been given is "slow and steady wins the race," as a reference to work quality and speed.

What motivated you to select this career path?
My motivation was the desire and passion to help people. Politics is a way to get your voice heard, especially the voiceless. That is why President Trump was successful - because he spoke to people like no other politician did before and actually connected to a segment of the American population that was never really active before.

What problems do you consistently solve for your clients?
When I was in my previous positions, the kind of problem I liked to solve was "What are you missing?" and finding out "What do you need to be ready to succeed?"

What is your most significant accomplishment as a professional?
My most significant accomplishment was when I was a White House intern for President Trump in 2018. I cleaned up the process we were using to re-direct requests from the American people who were contacting the administration for help. Prior to my internship, requests were being sent out based on a heavily outdated 2014 reference binder from the previous administration. My updated binder required contacting every federal agency and took 1.5 months to complete. It stayed at the White House after I left and I hope they update it more frequently.
