How long have you been in a Lean In Circle? 
3 years

For you, what, so far, has been the highlight of your circle?
For me, by far, the amazing women I have the privilege of being part of a circle with. The diversity, wisdom and intelligence they bring to the table is amazing and the level of support I have experienced, especially through some of the toughest times any of us have ever had to deal with, has been priceless. I walk away from every single Circle In meeting feeling included, enlightened and empowered.

Tell us one thing about you that you are most proud of (personally or professionally).
I would have to say my perseverance and resilience through nearly 15 years of juggling single motherhood with a full time career; despite mistakes and moments of insanity, I ended up with 2 adult children I am very proud of. I remember people through that time asking me: "how do you keep all of those balls in the air?" and my answer: "Don't ask 'cause I don't know and if you make me stop and think about it, they'll (the balls) probably all fall down!"

What advice would you have for someone new to a Lean In circle?
Bring ALL of you to the party and risk being vulnerable; it's amazing how much faster and more meaningful the circle experience becomes when all of the members show up fully and honestly.  

Please share one fun fact or life hack you may have.
As a young adult, I lived and went to school in Germany - to keep from starving, I worked as a multi-lingual tour guide in a medieval castle; one of the most fun jobs I ever had!
