I got into cyber through sheer luck.
I was asked to take the MS Proxy Server exam so that I could install and configure what was considered a “firewall” at the time. Voila – I became a security person.
The experience that set me up for success was being a mom to 4 kids. It’s where I truly learned to manage risk.
I would tell my younger self “Always assume good intentions”.
Oh yes, and don’t wear blue eyeliner and feather earrings in your HS graduation photo!
The quote I live by – “To lead the people, walk behind them”. Lao Tzu
The biggest influencers in my life – my dogs, my kids, my husband, in that order 😊
