Senior Portfolio Innovation Analyst

"If you are bewildered and clinging tenaciously to some course you love, be patient. Work hard. Hold your dream tightly to you, and do everything you can to realize it within reason. Take a step that will lead you toward the realization of your dream, and then take another, and another, and another." - Jesmyn Ward, Navigate Your Stars
