MB Women in Tech Meetup
Taking the Leap into Tech: A Story of Career Reinvention with Kyla Wills-Lollback, Director of Operations, Gryd.
Are you considering a career change? Are you interested in joining the tech industry at any point in your career journey?
It’s not easy to change careers. Even as you’re trying to figure things out, some may ask “Why such a big change?” or not understand why the tech industry is a such an intriguing option.
Kyla, who set her sights on a career in law from an early age, found herself working as a lawyer at a big name law firm just like she had always wanted.
If her teenage self heard that she would be giving all of that up for the world of tech-startups, she never would have believed you.
Come along on the journey of one woman’s unexpected career pivot into the tech industry, and the lessons she learned along the way.
