WHAT I’VE LEARNED: The importance of work-life integration, rather than separation. It is through this integration that I have found increased fulfillment, productivity and overall well-being, leading to a more successful and purpose-driven life.
WHAT I’D CHANGE ABOUT VIRGINIA: One area that could be changed to strengthen the connection between education and business in Virginia is by fostering greater collaboration and partnerships between educational institutions and local businesses.
