My Library

In the last few years, these books have taken me from a bumbling college student to who I am today.

These books are what I would recommend to myself if I were just starting out on my professional journey. 

Each book resonated with me at the point I was at in my journey. If you start reading a book and you don’t enjoy it, then put it down and forget about it.
