What does successful workplace culture mean to you?

A workplace where the entire team feels empowered, heard, appreciated, and challenged. A place that supports thought leadership, education, and professional development at every level.

If you had to pick one word that best represents Bergmeyer's culture, what would it be, and why?

Adaptive. Whether it’s adapting to clients, projects, market trends, professional goals, technology, or global pandemics, our team is always adapting to provide creative solutions to our clients and an empowering environment for employees.

What would you be doing if you were not working in this industry?

I found my calling, but in a parallel life, I would be an event planner. I am organized, energetic, and well-known for throwing annual Kentucky Derby parties.

What's inside your favorite cocktail?

Any floral cocktail with gin, elderflower liqueur, and prosecco bubbles to top it off.

Have you ever gotten lost on purpose?

Never, and I have the most Type-A vacation itineraries you have ever seen to prove it.

What is your most unshakable vice?

Chocolate, but I’m not trying to shake it!

What do you listen to while working toward a deadline?

I prefer fast-paced digital music, like DJ sets or remixes. The faster the music, the faster I work.
