Q: Why did you join Women in Digital?

Q: What is the best career advice you’ve ever received?

A: Free website reviews/audits to make sure the site is on track!

Q: What will be your first ask?

Q: What does digital mean to you?

A: Being connected even when far away.

Q: What do you think is the greatest challenge facing women today?

A: Letting “social norms” dictate how far we can go and our own fear of failure (or being seen by others as failures).

Q: What do you think we can do to overcome that challenge?

A: When afraid, I ask, “What’s the worst that could happen?” The response has never involved someone dying, and the worst was that I lose everything and move back to PA with my mom. Well, that’s not bad because she loves her grand-daughters and she cooks all my fave foods… I also pump myself up with OWTFGFIA (OH WHAT THE FUCK, GO FOR IT ANYWAY) while jumping up and down. Yes, sometimes in heels and sometimes in a restroom before a client meeting.

Q: Why do you love digital?

A: Because you’re connected to the world! You can start a movement, make someone laugh and make them cry even if they’re on the other side of the world.
