Q & A with Kasia Nels, PHR

What is your favorite animal?

Sharks. They are an apex predator, they endure (dating back to prehistoric times), and you cannot sneak up on them. And then there is the obvious as to why sharks are awesome; Shark Week and Jaws!

What is the best advice you have ever been given?

“Ask Why” and “Don’t take life too seriously, no one gets out alive”

What is your favorite quote?

Patience is not always a virtue. It can, under some circumstances, be a reprehensible vice, a clear indication of apathy, stupidity or gullibility. Impatience could, by much the same token, be profoundly wise and deeply appropriate. Some things need to be done as soon as possible. Tomorrow is too late. You are no keen to put off a particular plan a moment longer. You are right to leap boldly into action.

Where is your hometown?

Lafayette, NY. (Small town outside Syracuse, NY… Go Orange!)
