When the dream job didn’t lead to the life I imagined, I knew I needed to re-strategize. I wanted my career to be intellectually challenging, fiscally rewarding, and compliment my life without consuming it. With the ink still wet on my undergraduate arts degree, I decided to make the pivot to cybersecurity and haven’t looked back. Hacker in Heels is my passion project to inspire others to join me.
