“Start before you are ready. Don’t prepare. Begin.” - Mel Robbins
I got into cyber – I put myself through college doing administrative work at a Domain Name Registry. I was young with zero experience. I couldn’t even spell DNS 😊 I just jumped in, and great people in the field helped me learn and grow along the way.
What do you think are important topics in cyber today? – Acute shortages of skilled professionals continue to be a challenge in the field. Our future depends on a transformed workforce therefore I am passionate about championing overlooked talent pools such as neurodiverse individuals, adults in career transition, and curious high school graduates to name a few.
The skill that set me up for success – I’m a firm believer in the power of community. Building meaningful relationships within a network of strong professionals has been key for me in all aspects of my life. Take care of others and they will take care of you!
The quote I live by is – “Start before you are ready. Don’t prepare. Begin.” – Mel Robbins
What I most want to be remembered for is – being a good mom.
