The best part of her job: I have the greatest job in the world. It affords me the ability to learn every day and to work with people around the globe supporting the world’s best brands. Leveraging a team with different cultural perspectives provides a unique way to tackle challenges, seize opportunities and enable success.

The key to balancing work & life: Balance is about setting limits and creating a community of support around you.

Her passion to learn: I would like to be in a position where I am still learning and developing. The only guarantee is that change is constant and adapting to change requires the continuous acquisition of knowledge.

Keep changing: Be bold and be brave – a career isn’t a race but rather a journey. Challenge yourself to take on new areas to learn and develop early and often. Don’t be afraid of change, but remember to ask questions and get help. There will be times that you fail but seize those as learning opportunities to make you stronger.
