My friends call me: Trudi

I am the: Co-Founder at 4ECPs

I joined the OWA in:2018

Words my colleagues use to describe me are:Innovative, Fearless, Ambitious, Creative & Workaholic

The career advice I would give my 18-year-old self is:Start Your Own Business Earlier

When I think about my career, I'm most excited about:Opportunities! I have been in the eye care industry for over 20 years and have seen a lot of changes. With every change comes opportunity. You just have to be open enough to see it. Our world is shifting but for the ones that can adapt and find new space in the changing landscape it could open some amazing possibilities.

Daily, I read:The news! I am married to a media guy so we still read the newspaper...I know old school. But then I read industry blogs and news forums. I am subscribed to everything in the industry so it's a lot of blogs.

My theme song is:Survivor

I recommend:I recommend: * Working hard but playing hard too! * has paid back 10 fold in my career * Pushing the limits - do things that scare you * Give back in some way * Teach others what you know * Take care of your have nothing without it - eat well, sleep, exercise, get rid of stress * Last...don't keep doing it if it is not making you happy (rules for love, life and business)
