What inspires you about the work you do at SK?

I am inspired daily by the opportunity to make a difference for patients living with epilepsy. It’s so rewarding to hear the success stories from doctors about their patients achieving zero seizures, returning to work, driving again, and that makes me want to push harder.

What’s your best piece of leadership advice that you would share with other women at SK?

Don’t be afraid to speak up – share ideas, ask questions, and be an advocate for yourself for your career growth. Seek out opportunities; don’t wait for them to come to you. My favorite project that I was asked to participate in last year happened because I asked questions at a meeting.

Do you have a mentor at your workplace, or do you currently mentor anyone? If so, what is the most valuable part of mentorship for you?

I have been so lucky to have many mentors throughout my career. As a working mom, sometimes it feels like a monumental task to be both the best mom and employee, so I was lucky that my manager connected me with Amanda Williamson, a very successful senior director at the company, as an unofficial mentor. I’ve learned so much from her over the last couple of years, and she has been a powerful example to me that it is possible to do it all.
