Looking to lead with empathy.

“The reason why we strive for excellence is because if we're not excellent, we let our caregivers down, or our partners down or customers down.”

“Technology and digital...these are tools just like anything else. What you really have to focus on is the human problem, the human experience, the human perspective.”

“If you have a vision, it doesn't matter where you come from, or who you are, what you look like, or people's perceptions are of you--you go for it.”
