Q. During your career what is something you have tried and been disappointed by? How did you pivot and/or adapt?
A. I have been surprised by the roles that I thought I would love that turned out not to be that interesting, and similarly, positions that I thought I would dislike that turned out to be excellent. I have stayed very open to different opportunities and teams. I consult mentors and take advice from colleagues, but I also am open to taking a risk and forming my own opinion rather than listening to chatter or following what sounds cool and exciting.
