What is one word that describes you perfectly?
What advice would you give to the next generation of female leaders?
Focus on your strengths. Put your hand up for everything so you can learn. Be a superstar at your current role, so the next opportunity doesn’t seem like such a stretch. Be coachable. Ask for regular feedback. Demonstrate that you can absorb and implement it. Don’t be shy! Share your wins, your losses and learnings and chat about your ambition. Make sure you are on the radar so you are front of mind when an opportunity comes up. Don’t be afraid to be your whole self, showing who you are as a leader and who you are as a women.
What makes you happy?
My daughter. She motivates me to keep growing. I want my daughter to see me as an example of overcoming and that you can work & be successful and handle a lot of other things at the same time.. Being around my family and friends makes me happy, they are my support system and my motivation to be the best version of me.
How do you measure success?
I consider reaching both small and large milestones towards a goal as a success. I view success as a process where challenges encourage me to look at things from different perspectives and to find creative solutions to problems. Facing those challenges helps me progress personally at the same time that I hopefully make progress toward company objectives. I can leave work feeling successful as long as I have made some progress toward solving a problem or reaching a goal.
What historical event inspires you the most?
Rosa Parks. She invigorated the struggle for racial equality.
What is your favorite quote and why?
“A powerful woman rises from her adversity. But never forgets her roots. She transforms her pain into strength. She is equipped with an intuition that guides her course like a compass. She is not afraid to seek truth. Even when it hurts. She designed to be admired. Not always likes. She is fierce. Determined and unstoppable.”
