Regularly featured in women in tech and inspirational leader awards, she is a phenomenal trailblazer and brings her whole self to work and encourages everyone around her to do the same.
“But I think of the things that I've done as choices, not sacrifices. You can't have it all for sure. But, the things I have are the things I chose to have.”
