My road in life took a while to figure out.
At age 12, I wanted to do two things: attend Spelman College & become a lawyer.
I went straight to law school from Spelman, focused on corporate law.
I clerked for a federal appellate judge, and decided to stay in my hometown.
I took a chance on a job posting for a contract manager, and negotiated IT deals.
Someone approached me about managing some complex IT supplier relationships, & I thought "why not?"
That propelled me into 3 other supplier management roles before I began supporting Digital.
I realized that every step on this journey has prepared me for the moment I'm in now.

Day to Day

A lot of my time is spent interacting with my internal business customers; understanding their projects and strategy. I have a lot of discussions about how we should set up contracts with suppliers, what's the latest and greatest in the world of innovation and technology, and how we can do things faster while still protecting our customers and our company.

Advice for Getting Started

The Noise I Shed

From Society in General:

"You're a lawyer at a Fortune 500, but you're not in house counsel? What was the point of law school if you aren't going to practice law?"
