My experiences have taught me to appreciate what I have, to make do with very little, and to treat everyone with respect by understanding each individuals unique challenges. You never know what someone else is going through or how a little support and encouragement can be just what that person needs to achieve their goal.

Nearly 50% of the worlds power is held by women, so without women in cybersecurity, think of the potential were missing! Women are multitaskers, with a temperament that enables us to navigate difficult situations calmly and respectfully, and often we can engage one on one with customers in a different, more empathetic way.

On the job, my teachers are my colleagues and managers. I still appreciate my first manager in IT. His pursuit of excellence and commitment to constantly raising the bar earned him the distinction of becoming the youngest manager at the company. His focus, drive, and empathy for others impressed me deeply, and I believe these characteristics are what made him outstanding and successful.
