On this week’s episode of Tales Around the Water Cooler, Kristen sits down with Senior User Experience Designer and longtime friend Alison Gaddis. They run the gamut of topics regarding their careers, beginning with their very first job together at Coconut’s Music and Movies. Kristen and Alison share their experiences as two women in leadership roles. The two chat about how to handle uncomfortable workplace dynamics, the unique value of a creative mind, and the trials and triumphs of being a woman in male-dominated fields. They also provide helpful discourse and relatable anecdotes on setting professional limits and taking up the space you deserve.
