What part of your job are you most looking forward to?

I’m excited to be a part of CADENAS PARTsolutions again. It’s an amazing company with great products and great people, so the opportunity to come back and be a part of that again is what I was most looking forward to. It felt like coming home a little bit.

Career Background

I started my career as a journalist, and I wrote over 1,500 news stories. It was right around the time the internet was up and coming, so I got to help move the newspaper I was working at from print to digital. That’s how I got bit by the technology bug and fell in love with tech. After that, I worked in a variety of tech companies (startups and enterprise software companies).


I live in Cincinnati, Ohio, and I’ve spent most of my life here. Before that, I was in central Ohio and Knoxville, Tennessee. We also split time in Michigan now.

What do you do for fun?

I love listening to and playing music. I also like hiking, playing pickleball, and doing digital art and design.


We have a labradoodle named Penny Lane.

Favorite movie

“Gladiator” and “The Shawshank Redemption”

Favorite TV show

My current favorite show is “The Bear.”

Favorite band or singer
