My friends call me: Steph
I am the: EVP & General Manager of Member Solutions for Healthy Eyes Advantage
I joined the OWA in:2018
Words my colleagues use to describe me are:Dedicated, driven, determined, hard-working, energetic, loyal
The career advice I would give my 18-year-old self is:Pursue your career with purpose but don't take yourself too seriously; let your personality and your passion shine through in all you do.
When I think about my career, I'm most excited about:Maximizing growth potential -- for my team members, for HEA members, for HEA and yes, for me too!
Daily, I read:The New York Times, CNN.com, NJ.com, various industry news sources
My theme song is:Small Town by John Mellencamp -- I was raised in the same small Indiana town as John Mellencamp and, even though I no longer live there, it will always represent 'home' for me. I also love watching the video -- so full of throwback memories!
I recommend:Trying new things outside one's comfort zone, making time for family and friends, traveling, reading a book (where you actually turn the pages), and - every once in awhile - actually unplugging and doing nothing at all. I have not yet mastered these things so I'm recommending them to myself as much as to everyone else!
