Leadership is…

knowing and being yourself: connecting to what you believe, what you do well, and inviting others on a journey of impact.

One thing I am proud of is…

being known for something that works. At Yahoo!, I led the implementation of the Career Development @ Yahoo! Workshop that was delivered globally in 15 countries, reached approximately 2,000 global participants in 2011, and contributed to a 7% increase in career engagement in six months. It is still being implemented today.

One place that is special to me is…

the ocean. The combination of power, beauty, and life always mesmerizes me.

One thing I love is…

music. “Music is an outburst of the soul.” – Federick Delius
