“Since there are not a ton of women that are out there in tech, I actually feel like it [being a woman] was not a disadvantage for me. If anything, it was an advantage.”
“The people management, empathetic leadership type of the side of our roles has never been more important.”
“If your work isn’t fulfilling, then make a move, […] nobody wins when people aren’t matched in the right team or in the right company.”
