What advice would you give to other female professionals moving up the career ladder?
Our career pathways may be unique, but what matters most is that we continue to learn and expand our horizons. Keep trusted mentors, friends and family members close as they provide crucial support and guidance when we are at our worst.
Build your core resilience and know that barriers are there for us to knock down. Gratitude is important and I always try to remember to give back, support those around us and, most importantly, rest when you need to.
