“The strongest influences in my personal life have been my family and friends,” she says, “and, at work, I am proud of accomplishing projects with people who have motivated me to become a better version of myself.”
While Yuri appreciates the cultural diversity, community engagement, and opportunities she has found in her hometown of Houston, Texas, someday she’d like to travel a third of the way around the world to an entirely different environment and go on safari in South Africa.
Wherever she is, Yuri is committed to empowering herself with positive energy in small ways.
“Each morning, I open my small book, ‘Everyday Positive Thinking,’ to a random page,” she says, “and I apply that message to my day.”
We’re grateful that Yuri plays by that book to bring her positive energy to help power our team at NFE.
