    I think a lot of people assume I’m an extrovert because I’m relatively visible in my role
    at BodeTree and enjoy engaging with people across the board. The truth, however, is
    that I’m more naturally inclined towards introverted tendencies. I’m more than comfortable
    keeping to myself and cherish the time I dedicate to quiet introspection.

    As humans, we often have a tendency to mistake loudness for confidence, and aggression
    for strength. As such, extroverts often have an easier time rising to the top of an
    organization. Once at the top, however, I’ve found that the traits and behaviors most often
    associated with introverts are the ones that separate successful leaders from failures.
