What do you do and what are your goals in your current job? I run all aspects of Corbin, a catalyst in helping public companies unlock/create value. I manage a 12-person team, consult clients and serve as an external guest speaker. High-level goals: Continue to grow top-line, increase brand awareness, and foster an innovative workplace.

What are your goals for your community involvement? From sitting on boards of nonprofits to hosting events at our home to engender community and increase awareness to mentoring individuals, I use everything with which I have been blessed to give back.

What's your biggest passion? I am passionate about being a source of positive energy creation every day. This manifests itself in everything I do but probably none as apparent as the zeal I have as wife to my amazing husband and mother to our three wonderful daughters.

What are your future aspirations? From a business perspective, I would like to author a book by leveraging our firm's novel research and my subject matter expertise: value creation through best-in-class investor relations. Personally, I would like to engender a movement that encourages people to be nicer and kinder to each other.

What role can young leaders play in shaping Hartford's future? Young leaders are the future of Hartford. I believe young leaders play a critical role in helping evolve the perception of and creating more positive buzz around Hartford. As a trustee of two of Hartford's notable cultural assets — the Bushnell and Hartford Symphony — I am actively involved in building awareness and community engagement. #HartfordPride
