As Director of Strategic Growth and lead of Root’s Chicago office, Aubrey’s role satisfies her passion for connecting with people and working toward positive outcomes. Her greatest fulfillment is found in helping clients at all levels of organizations discover their own value, appreciation, and contribution to the “big picture” of the business.
