Perhaps the most prevalent advice for anyone seeking career opportunities is the frequently touted adage, “It’s all about who you know.” A mantra of career coaches, mentors and teachers alike, the strength of a good network can’t be denied when attempting to augment and define or redefine your career path.

In her role, she’s responsible not only for managing a team, but also interfacing with outside counsel when extra horsepower is needed internally.
