Describe your values and how they inform your career?
If values can be ranked, I rank integrity the highest. Doing what I say, honoring commitments, and meeting expectations are central to me. I believe in treating others as I want to be treated and displaying dignity and respect to those I serve.
Don’t rush to failure.
