From the Desk:
Item 1: Photos
I keep lots of photos of family and friends around me at work. They serve as a reminder of the most important things in life, especially when things get stressful.
Item 2: Wall calendar
My wall calendar with all months of year not only helps me keeps track of big events and birthdays but helps me remember the big picture for long projects.
Item 3: Scratch paper
I'm a visual person, so I keep scratch paper close to me so I can jot down thoughts or sketch the flow of a process.
Additional Comments from Jennifer: I appreciate staying close to SPH. I've made life long friends and mentors during my time in the program and at work. Connect with Jennifer on LinkedIn!
