    The most challenging part of my job is communicating with my coworkers and members.

    Did you self-disclose your stuttering during the job hiring process?
    Yes, I did. I let them know that I stuttered before I started the interview. When it comes to my coworkers just let them ask me.

    Describe how stuttering makes you a better, more valued contributor at work.
    I believe my stutter helps me better relate to members that have a stutter or something similar.

    What is your proudest moment at your current company?
    One moment that comes to mind was helping a member fix a fraud on their account.

    What are your long-term career aspirations?
    I want to eventually go back to school and become a teacher.

    What’s your best advice for people who stutter just entering the workplace and for those in a career striving to achieve greater success?
    Don’t let your stutter hold you back. If anything, stuttering makes you more of a valuable worker. You are unique and special. Believe it!
