How long have you been in a Lean In Circle?

3 years

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

The ladies! Everyone has unique personalities and experiences. The circles have created a way to connect on a high level and create bonds that will last a lifetime. 

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

I'm proud to be a leader in the gaming industry, coming from a very small town in Oklahoma I followed my dreams. Pursuing a career in gaming, maintaining my farm town morals and strong drive, has lead me to success in both operations at Caesars Entertainment and manufacturing at Aristocrat – now managing my own consulting company working with companies leading the gaming industry in games and payments.

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

You owe it to yourself - there are many successful open minded women in the industry that are part of GGW and Lean In Circles that are willing to share their insights and become a friend to lean on or lifelong friend. Once you join, be open and present, make the commitment to yourself to join all meetings and as many additional gatherings that may develop. Bonds will build; it only requires a little time – you are worth it! 

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

Smile! It is contagious and even if you’re having a bad day or facing challenging emotions. A smile will bring light to your life and others.
