At i2E, I use my skills as a banker, professional manager and attorney as well as the funds management and administrative skills I learned as state treasurer. I also credit state government for teaching me how to work collaboratively with others outside my workplace to accomplish common goals.
Q: How will you juggle your role as CEO and president of i2E, as well as your clients at Crowe & Dunlevy?
A: My New Year's resolution was to give up sleeping. Seriously, I am a bit of a workaholic. Over the past 24 years, the only time I have not had at least two jobs was the past two years which I spent establishing my law practice and growing the banking practice group at Crowe & Dunlevy. I had been a professional senior manager for the previous 20 years. I found that although I really enjoyed practicing law, I missed management and running a company. Fortunately, I was offered an opportunity which is compatible with my law practice. Thanks to technology, it is much easier than ever to keep up with both my responsibilities as CEO and president of i2E as well as my responsibilities to my clients at Crowe. I am also blessed to be surrounded by a great staff at i2E and extremely gifted and talented attorneys and legal support staff at Crowe & Dunlevy. That makes it a lot easier and more manageable.
