How long have you been in a Lean In Circle?

1 year

For you, what, so far, has been the highlight of your circle?

My circle includes a very diverse group of women and together we have over 120 years of experience in our careers. The foundation of our circle is built on trust and no matter what we are facing, we always end our meetings with something positive! A major benefit for me has been that I now have the ultimate support system! I don't feel like I have to navigate personal or professional challenges or opportunities on my own. The ladies in my circle always provide new perspectives, ideas, thoughts for consideration, and ultimately lead me to my next step forward in being successful (thank you, ladies!).

Tell us one thing about you that you are most proud of (personally or professionally).

I am very excited to announce that my husband and I are expecting our first baby girl in January! Since work-life balance is nearly impossible to achieve, I have taken the advice of Joanna Barsh. Over the last six months, I have been challenging myself to manage my energy and monitor my emotional and physical state. This has allowed me to identify my energy sources (sleep, mindfulness, maintaining relationships, and staying grounded) so that I can achieve my goals for my personal and professional life.

What advice would you have for someone new to a Lean In circle?

Go for it! Don't have a second thought and take the opportunity. You have nothing to lose and so much to gain!

Please share one fun fact or life hack you may have.
