How long have you been in a Lean In Circle? 
Since 2020

For you, what, so far, has been the highlight of your circle?
I've enjoyed the benefits of having a small, trusted circle of female executives who amazingly give so freely of a precious commodity: their personal time. We listen to each other intently, we laugh, we share our struggles and triumphs openly and we NEVER judge each other for the decisions we make. We are more alike than different in so many ways!

Tell us one thing about you that you are most proud of (personally or professionally).
The women in my Circle are already highly accomplished - yet in the early days and months of the pandemic, as we were all dealing with waves of emotion and change, four of our Circle members rose to new professional challenges, achieving promotions and making major career decisions. I'd like to think our Circle's collective care and concern helped prepare them for their new roles!

What advice would you have for someone new to a Lean In circle?
Throw your heart over the bar and the rest will follow! Apply and join with positive intent. If you don't make time for your personal and professional development, who will?

Please share one fun fact or life hack you may have.
Strong coffee and a quick morning run can get your day started on the right foot.
