When you think about your career so far, what achievement stands out the most?

When I first came to Powell Auction, I was about to graduate from college with a degree in business administration and was really interested in the auction industry. I cold called them out of the blue, and they didn’t know me from Adam. Luckily, they gave me a chance, and what started as a part-time, entry-level gig grew into a much broader role. I am grateful that I have been able to earn their trust and appreciate the ways in which they have allowed me to grow in my leadership.
