Hey everyone,
I went to a conference last week. It was the first time in a while that I was by myself. I didn’t have to play my role as a wife or a mom. I felt guilty for doing something for myself. I had a bit of an identity crisis the first two days; like who the heck am I?
I’m glad I went. I met some great people and learned a lot. The time alone gave me a chance to reflect and celebrate. I have come a long way in terms of my career. If you are someone who puts everyone else first, take some time for yourself. You deserve it! 💕
I along with Ali Spittel, Lindsey Kopacz and Kelly Miller submitted a panel to talk about building a better tech industry for nontraditional techies at SXSW. We’d appreciate your support 🙏. Voting ends today, August 23rd!
Have a great weekend!

🎉 Get Inspired
Cheers to Year One at Microsoft Cheers to Year One at Microsoft
🙏 Words of Wisdom

I am not the first one to say this, but I need this reminder as much as everyone else out there.

If you're tired, rest, don't quit.

I'm forcing myself to rest a lot this weekend.

The term “Success” is subjective, it’s also not a single destination. It is up to you to define what this means to you & adjust as needed.

Do not model yourself after others & for the love of encryption, do not let other people define it for you.
