What TAP has taught me:
Any successful project requires multiple perspectives. I've learned as much from my clients as I have from my TAP colleagues, and I'm a better consultant because of that.
Greatest TAP moments:
One of my favorite TAP moments was in Detroit while we working with Chase Small Business. I was consulting with a client whose company manufactures and sells bathroom stalls. I enjoyed our conversation because her product and her business was fascinating!
At my very first TAP training session, the women in the room introduced themselves and talked about their backgrounds. I was impressed by how smart and accomplished they were, and also impressed by their diversity of experience. After being home with my kids for several years it was exciting to be able to use my professional skills again.
Words to live by:
“Carrying as we climb” - women have to help each other along the way, at work and at home.
My role model:
My mother, a retired professor who is still researching, writing, lecturing, traveling and learning, in her 70s.
