As a woman, coach, and a senior organizational leader in tech, I love to share my learnings with others who are curious to know what my experience has been like. With a bit of humor and more than 20 years’ worth of stories, I write quick, bite-size articles (what I dubbed a “hustleberry”) that reflect my thoughts on topics relevant to modern leadership: Diversity, creativity, career growth, humility, emotional intelligence, feedback, safety, and trust, among others. Occasionally a post is contributed by a guest writer who kindly shares their wit and wisdom.
