Back to McKinsey Women Blog

Hello from our London office

– Hi everyone,
Thank you for reading my blog! I'm excited to use this platform to share my experiences—and I hope to interest some of you in joining McKinsey.

I joined our London office about two years ago, after finishing my MBA at INSEAD in Fontainebleu, and it has been quite a ride already. Even with 15 engagements under my belt, I'm still energized by each new project that comes my way. I get excited about steering committee meetings with our client CEOs and the decisions that can transform companies. One of my favorite aspects of our project-based work is meeting new colleagues—I'm always inspired by their passion to create impact for our clients.

As you can see in my bio, I am passionate about women in the workplace and supporting efforts to increase women in leadership positions. A few months ago, I was able to put that passion into action by being a faculty member at a McKinsey leadership workshop for female students and early stage career professionals in London. It was absolutely fantastic sharing my journey and professional experiences with so many driven, energetic women who are at the start of their careers. My module was about the importance of sponsorship and mentorship and how they are crucial for managing one's career—something I've found to be true both at McKinsey and in my prior company.

I'll share a new post soon and tell you a little more about my daily life at McKinsey.
