Hihi! I'm convinced that working in an organization doesn't mean you need to turn into a corporate drone, obey your village elders, track your work in that tool, and risk dying of boredom.
Instead, I believe that it's absolutely possible to win in the corporate world while still being YOU. How? By practicing the ancient art of Intrapreneurship.
I spend my days engineering software as the Chief #NinjaCat of the Windows Insider Program at Microsoft, one of the biggest communities of people in the world who act as the tech influencer for everyone in their lives. Previously, I worked on developer engagement for HoloLens, the world's first holographic computer. I've been in the tech industry for over a dozen years (yes, I'm old), and despite my decades of shenanigans, I remain unfired (and unjailed!)
I spend my side-hustle time writing fiction and non-fiction books to help young professionals have the careers of their dreams, running an ethically-made luxury fashion line called Prima Dona, coaching entrepreneurs in emerging markets, saying words on stages all over the world, and coming up with some REALLY scheme-y schemes.
My favorite, FAVORITE job is being a bossy big sister to thousands of amazing humans who want to #DoTheThing.
Fast Company’s says I'm one of their Most Productive People (Um...okay).
