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

Different perspectives and new ways of looking at challenges, my career and the persona I present to the world.

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

Leading a circle has pushed me out of my traditional comfort zone, and from that I have gained a lot of control that has translated back to confidence in the workplace.

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

The benefits far outweigh any concerns you may have, whether it’s the time commitment or whether you’ll fit in or anything else that may be holding you back. Once you join, those concerns will fade right into the background.

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

I once worked at Buckingham Palace.
