The LifeLabs Learning value that most resonates with me and why: Find a Way to Play is central to my personal life philosophy and I just love that it is one of LifeLabs Learning’s values. I believe playfulness fosters curiosity, reduces judgment, and increases connection. I believe finding a way to play enables trust-building, risk-taking, and learning, and also just makes things more joyful on the daily.
