The biggest lesson I have learned is that there is always a way and you have to find the best one - for you, for the team and for the organization. I have always tried to find balance in every situation, and I have never put anyone's priorities first. It's just a matter of teamwork, openness and collaboration.

How is VMware different to any other tech company you have worked for?
VMware primarily focuses on making you part of this large family, giving you visibility on how you can grow in the organization and how many different opportunities and communities exist to make you feel welcome.
The company's focus on Diversity & Inclusion and the tremendous effort to empower Women in Technology & Leadership make VMware a great place to work.
VMware also does a great job of supporting us in the process of onboarding newcomers during the pandemic. As a manager, my priority is to get each member of the team to move smoothly to their new role in these challenging times. We give people the flexibility to work in a way that makes them feel comfortable and safe.
What has been the biggest lesson you have learned as you moved upwards in your career?
Be transparent - the more open you are, the better visibility in expectations you set.
Have goals and dreams - What I would like to achieve next? Where I want to be? This is the only way not to get stuck and to constantly learn and develop.
Hard work and honesty are always valued.
.. and it's not just me, but my team, my community, my family.
Your team is hiring. Can you tell us more about your organization’s charter?

If someone reading this was coming to interview with you tomorrow for a role in your org, what interview tips would you give them?
Interviews should not be seen as exams, but as a conversation. Knowing you better will help us structure the team in the right way, and on the other hand will give you a chance to outline your future career development.
