I met Christin during the Launch event in Durham in April and I was immediately amazed by her positive personality, the smile and when I asked just a few questions about her career path I knew I needed to interview Christin for the ZenOne podcast as soon as possible. Her story is incredible, she has an immense level of Emotional Intelligence and perseverance. In just a short amount of time she was able to grow from starting as a dental assistant, then Hygienist, then to director of operations and to a current position at Light Wave Dental as a VP of Fields Operations. She’s been through some difficult life challenges but with “ Above and Beyond” attitude and “Always say Yes' '' she was able to overcome it all. We discuss many subject including Ambitions, How to reward the team, Personal Life and the cost of achieving goals, Work life balance for the leaders, and much more.
