How long have you been in a Lean In Circle?

1 year

Tell us 1 or 2 specific things that you have benefited from being in your circle

My circle of women has provided support and perspective on day to day challenges in work and at home, it really is special to have this type of non-judgemental support, together we are all learning and growing.

What is the biggest obstacle in your career that you were able to overcome?

Getting over the idea I was not qualified for a particular role is something I have faced many times in my career. I have learned that a lack of confidence can actually manifest failure and the inverse is true. Now I focus on approaching new situations and challenges with a confidence that there is nothing I can't figure out with the right time and resources.

If someone was on the fence about joining a Lean In circle, based on your own experience, what would you tell them?

Like most things in life, you will get out of the circle what you put into it. If you are on the fence, ask yourself why? Once you understand why you can tackle it head on, overcome it and ultimately join! it is a great way to learn and grow.

What is something most people don't know about you?

Most people are surprised to learn that I am an introvert by nature and social settings are actually very draining. I am always surprised to learn, how many around me are the exact same way.
