What's your favorite part about working at Pathfinder?
Working for an organization with a mission and a vision that I believe in and support.

What's one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
I can balance a spoon on my nose!

Was there a moment when the importance of Pathfinder's work really hit home for you?
There are so many it is hard to point to just one. There are daily experiences when speaking with colleagues on the phone, specific incidents from traveling to our field offices or just day-to-day interactions and conversations with colleagues here in Watertown. The importance hits me every time I watch a video, or read a story on the web, a Pathfinder publication, or in the local newspaper.
