Your most embarrassing date moment?
Walking into a restaurant for a first date and handing my ID to the guy I thought was the bouncer standing at the front door, only to find out it was actually my date waiting for me at the entrance. The confused look on his face was priceless, as was the mortified look on mine when I realized who he was.
What career accomplishment are you most proud of?
Becoming the president of a 2,000 person women's group at Microsoft during my first year at the company. I've always had a passion for women's advancement (I wrote my undergraduate thesis on empowering women through microfinance and my graduate dissertation on female employment policies in China and India). Leading this women's group has been a great opportunity for me to exercise my passion for supporting, advancing, and retaining female talent in the workplace while also building partnerships with similar groups at other companies (Starbucks, Gates Foundation, etc.)
