What does International Women’s Day mean to you?
International Women’s Day to me means a day that I can thank all the women who fought tirelessly for me to have the freedom to use my voice, to be educated, and to do what I set my mind to. On this day, I celebrate all the strong women, who have brought light into my life and to the world.
Why did you choose Tenable and the cyber industry?
One thing that I love the most about Tenable is the culture. I have seen female employees be treated equally; they got where they are today because of the amazing job they delivered. Tenable has a welcoming and inclusive environment where it is always safe and acceptable to be you, whatever your background is.
What’s your #1 piece of advice for women working in tech?
Be yourself and be brave. The world is changing by the moment, yet the constants in our individual lives - the work and the values we commit to are what bring us the greatest joy. The world is hierarchical no matter where you are. With competing ambitions and goals, you're gonna fight for what you want. However, in the midst of all the ambitions and questions, sometimes being able to simply be is the greatest gift.
Tell us about a woman who inspires you and what you’ve learned from her (can be personal, public, current, or historical).
Susan B. Anthony has always be my role model.
Susan B. Anthony had seen some of the worst this world has to offer, but she firmly believed in the coming day even in the bleakest dawn. As she watched a generation of girls denied access to the basic rights, she dedicated her life to giving them the same opportunity they deserve to have.
One of my favorite quotes from Susan B. Anthony: "We shall someday be heeded, and everybody will think it was always so, just exactly as many young people today think all the privileges which woman now processes always were hers. They have no idea how every single inch of ground she stands on has been gained by the hard work of some little handful women in the past."
She worked tirelessly to give faith to a new generation of girls that a new day is coming, one that may feel bleak and cold now, but will one day be warm and broad and include everyone under the sun.
