Jay Palais, MBA

Staff Accountant

When you’re not working you’re…?

Coaching AAU baseball and playing baseball. Fun facts: I am a former professional baseball player and have black belts in Kitoshakai MMA, Judo, Karate, and Jui-Jitsu.

What’s the best career advice you ever got?

The best career advice I have ever got is one “only perfect practice makes perfect” and “control what you can control.” These two quotes have been very meaningful in my life as I strive to practice the right things that are needed and to only control what I do in my career, not to worry about others.

Where did you grow up? Where do you live now?

I grew up in Farmington, Connecticut and I now live in Wayland, Massachusetts.

What’s a destination in the world that you aspire to visit?

I would love to visit Japan to experience that culture and the wonderful foods.
