Your most embarrassing date moment?
My date and I were at a lounge getting to know each other a little better, when a gorgeous guy (who had been smiling at me all night) from the other end of the bar sent a drink over. I pulled the cocktail towards me, and before I could politely thank the sender and tactfully explain that I was already on a date, I was abruptly interrupted by the bartender... who repositioned the drink in front of my date and said, “Actually, it's for him."
What career accomplishment are you most proud of?
A few years ago I was on the admissions team that recruits high school students for the United States Military Academy (my alma mater). As you can imagine, applying to the Academy and agreeing to subsequently serve in the U.S. Army for 5 years is a massive decision for any 17-year-old. During this time, I connected with one female student in particular who reminded me so much of myself. Of course, her decision to apply would be hers alone but I wanted her to really understand what the opportunity was, how it could change her life and give her a platform to positively impact the lives of others as it had done for me. Throughout many candid and hard conversations and a campus visit she decided that West Point was where she wanted to be. She is now in her senior year and it has been unbelievably rewarding to watch her progress and to celebrate her successes.
