What is your role at Startmate?

I run the Startmate Women Fellowship, a two month program helping women find their dream job in a startup.

Favourite Quote?

"Lean into every moment expecting magic and miracles to happen" - Adam Robinson

Favourite Book?

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Totally shaped my thinking as a young adult ("begin with the end in mind!")

What’s the first job you’ve ever had, and what did you learn from it?

I was a waitress at a restaurant. This is where I learned that service and experience is EVERYTHING.

What would be your alternative career?

Well - I did just jump out of law school, so a lawyer potentially! I did want to be a marine biologist or detective as a kid..
