What made you join She Runs It? For community and connection. I wanted to expand my professional connections beyond my workspace and I found She Runs when we were all doing fully remote work. I’m also very passionate about women leadership and truly believe that we can all thrive together, something that She Runs It also holds in its values.
What is something you are currently working on professionally that excites you? Two things: (1) I had been looking to pivot for a while to work closely on a growing product at Google and recently I was able to successfully land a role in the Google Travel team. I’m excited about the problem statements I’m working on as well as learning about the ever growing travel industry 2) I am currently pursuing an executive education at Stanford which is helping me grow my network and push myself outside of the comfort zone with the immense learning and practice
What committees/programs are you involved in with She Runs It? I’m part of the west coast committee and have worked on both the mentoring committee as well as development committee. I’ve been both a mentor as well as a mentee through the mentorship program and currently mentoring a group of amazing women through the Spring group mentoring program. I have also had the opportunity to be a panelist on the She Runs It All Star Mentor ERG Mini-Series Event.
