What is your favorite thing about your career?
I think the consulting industry is incredibly challenging, as we are constantly being asked to solve new and difficult business questions. The breadth of work and the difficulty level involved, however, have forced me to grow professionally in so many ways, and I’m definitely appreciative for the experience for that reason (among many others).
