Glenbrook Partners

What do you like most about being a member of the FWSF community?
The opportunity to meet accomplished, professional women in my own and adjacent industries.

When you were 10 years old, what were your career aspirations?
When I was 10, I was certain that I'd grow up to be a published novelist.

What is your favorite part of your job?
I work at a consulting firm, and my favorite projects involve introducing financial inclusion initiatives, extending financial services to the world's un-banked and underbanked populations.

What talent would you most like to have and why?
I wish I was a better creative problem-solver! Facing unstructured problems is something the partners at my firm excel at, and I would be a more valuable consultant if I was confident in my ability to conceptualize and commit to a roadmap for achieving some goal.

Best part of the past year?
Moving to SF from NYC. I'm now closer to my family, and enjoying living in a new city (I'm a NYC native).

What is your top career tip?
Be a supportive team member, and your coworkers and bosses will recognize you for it, and offer their support when you need a hand or an endorsement.
