What was your route to the top? I spent 13 years in private practice in few Boston law firms handling a range of business matters including litigation, employment issues, and various types of corporate work. During my entire legal career, I have been engaged in bar association work. In particular, I have spent the past 13 years on the board of the Women’s Bar Association of Massachusetts (WBA) and served as its President in 2011-12. Being engaged in the legal community and the advocacy work of the WBA has been critical to my career happiness and provided a community that fostered growth and success. In my last firm, I worked primarily with start-up companies. Seeing the challenges women entrepreneurs faced in getting off the ground inspired me to launch SheStarts in 2014 to support the growing women’s entrepreneurship community in Boston. I met Nicole Sahin, the CEO of Globalization Partners, as a result of my involvement in the women’s startup ecosystem in Boston. The company became a client and grew incredibly quickly. When Nicole asked me to join the company in 2016 as one of the first 10 employees, I was excited at the prospect of helping to build the company and work with some of the most talented people I have ever met. Because the company provides a global employment platform, it has been incredibly rewarding to not just provide legal advice, but to work across departments on building out our platform, which is a unique role for an in house legal department to play in a company.
