Here she shares valuable life and leadership lessons, inspiring all crunchmoms to aim a little higher.

You have a diverse background, can you share a little more about yourself?

I like to think I’m a cosmopolitan. I was born in the UK, in West Yorkshire, to a Turkish mother and German father. When I was about 10 years old, we moved to Australia and that is where I really grew up and completed my studies. In 2007, I got an itch to push myself into something new, so I made the move to Istanbul.

I started out in the infrastructure industry, building the marketing communications department from scratch. After a few years, I decided to move to the agency side to get additional experience, and led accounts such as Facebook, Verisign and Euler Hermes. My next move took me to the Netherlands for a high-profile natural gas pipeline project where I headed up media relations, before then making the move to GoDaddy.
