“I enjoy being able to work in an environment with such a strong diversity of opinions and ideas, which is what we have at Purple. No day is the same, all thoughts are useful and the confluence of diverse opinions makes this place special not only to me but to the benefit of our clients.”

“I am fortunate to be able to assess risk and opportunities for the company and assist leadership in achieving the best possible outcomes. The opportunity to help my colleagues bring their ideas to fruition in a manner that supports the growth and longevity of the company is a challenge I’m excited to undertake every day.”

“It might sound cliché but I am very much inspired to do a great job. I take a lot of pride in providing an excellent service, whether that be for a colleague, a client, or the people who are most important to me. I was raised to not only complete the objective, but to go above and beyond what is required. This concept has become a guiding principal for me. At times when I need motivation, I remember who is relying on me and my desire to give my best kicks in.”
