I joined JWiT because…

During my career prior to business school, I had the opportunity to work with many great women in various leadership roles. These women served in roles not only in the technology space, but also more generally. My former supervisor, the First Deputy Commissioner of the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs, was an exceptional and well respected leader who worked her way up through the organization from an intern position. I’ve also worked with two female CIOs, both of whom played pivotal roles in driving the agency’s technology focused priorities. Furthermore, my sister recently earned a degree in computer science after finally discovering her career passion in web development. She is very inspirational to me because of the challenges she faced in finding her educational priorities, finally fully pursuing her interests in the technology space.

Continuously developing my interests in new products and services, innovative solutions, and aspirational thinkers that have global impact. The idea that one person can change the entire world is truly inspirational to me. My father provided ample opportunity to stay abreast of the latest trends in the technology space, a value that has stayed with me through today. The technology sector provides the greatest potential for having lasting impact on the entirety of human society.
