What was the most significant moment in your career?
I’ve been with Inflection for a little less than three months now, after more than 16 years with my previous company. The shift away from a traditional media organization whose roots were in print to a company born in the digital era is a significant and exciting change for me. I’ve got a lot to learn about new audiences and products, and I’m excited to see where it all goes.
Why did you join Inflection?
Inflection is working on the problems of the modern world: how we connect online, how we allow online connections into our real lives without opening ourselves to an unacceptable level of risk, and how we protect our personal information online. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that? The bonus is the performance-oriented culture that still manages to be all about enjoying the work you do and the people you do it with.
Why is it important for women to pursue careers in technology? And why did you?
I think it’s important for women—really for people in general—to pursue careers doing something they love that also fits the lives they want to lead. I think the key (and the challenge) lies in understanding what makes you feel fulfilled professionally and personally and finding a career (or a specific job) that makes both possible.
What are you passionate about outside of work?
It feels funny to say that I’m passionate about running, when some days I think I don’t even like it! But after more than 140 consecutive days of running (in all kinds of weather, in three foreign countries, and in four different states), I’m ready to label it a passion.
