Tell us about your story.
The parts of my story that seem to resonate with people are taking a non-linear career path – how did someone with an arts degree end up in technology and business? And Otherhood – I did not choose to have children. I thought I would. I am happily married and as far as I know I am biologically capable. But I had other priorities and lead a very happy and fulfilled life. These are not necessarily the areas I prefer to speak to, but they are the ones that provide people with models they are not familiar with.
