I am a senior business analyst in Chicago, currently serving as deputy chief of staff to our global managing partner, Kevin Sneader. As a private pilot who grew up on a small farm in Indiana, I’m excited about the future of aviation and agriculture and how each industry will become more environmentally sustainable.

Why I chose these pieces

Environmental sustainability and diversity and inclusion are the two themes of the pieces I’ve chosen because they are key enablers to a better, stronger, and safer future for all. The global COVID-19 pandemic has shown that businesses, governments, and society can and must work together to solve the most pressing issues of our time, and these articles share actionable ways in which this can be done.
