What was your route to the top? I always knew I wanted to be a corporate attorney. In law school, I interned with companies instead of law firms and did everything I could to avoid litigation work. When I graduated in 2009, the peak of the economic crisis, my first paid job paid me exactly $0 per hour. I went on to open my own IP firm, then shut it down and work for someone else’s PI firm, but I still wanted to be a corporate attorney. My “jungle gym” career path finally brought me back to the corporate world when I landed my first in-house role at an automotive consulting firm, laying the foundation for my career in tech.
