Long drives, mountains, exploring a new city, podcasts featuring creative people talking about their work.


A Favorite Moment at Peer Insight

On my first day at PI, the firm came together for our weekly “huddle” meeting, which begins with everyone expressing gratitude for the efforts and actions of their peers.  I really loved this simple, yet powerful, activity and was motivated to acknowledge people in my life that deserved some long-overdue gratitude.
