Why Pavilion?

Coming from the ed-tech space, I’m drawn to companies that help people at scale through technology. There’s something so fulfilling and special about going to work every day, knowing that everything you’re doing supports a mission for positive social impact. Pavilion’s mission is to make government buying more efficient, which means faster and better goods and services for all; it was a no-brainer that this was a company I wanted to join. 

What do you like to do when you’re not working?

Nowadays, you’ll most likely catch me at home playing with my super hyper (and adorable) 1-year-old French Bulldog, Finn. Other than playing with the pup, I love simply hanging out with friends, which usually entails eating a lot of great food followed by some boba or coffee.  

What’s a goal you have for the year ahead?

I’m a huge music lover. However, due to the pandemic, I haven’t been able to see as many live shows as I’d like to. This year, I’d like to make an effort to go out and enjoy more concerts and music festivals. 

What’s your theme song of the moment?

As It Was by Harry Styles never fails to put me in the greatest mood!
