Siobhan Miller

“It's easy to get wrapped up in the urgency and the "go go go" of the day-to-day as a recruiting leader, and to forget that we get paid to be strategic! Thus, there is so much value in taking a day away to think, reflect with peers, and brainstorm ideas on how to up-level our functions. I feel like I invested in my future self today.”
