“I’ve been fortunate enough to have multiple mentors help guide me as I’ve figured out what I want to do with my life. In one of my first jobs, my boss at American Power Conversion was super smart, personable and encouraging, showing me a lot about the type of leader I want to be. Then, when I moved on to Credit Suisse, I worked for and developed a good relationship with the head of global research.
