Best Career Blunder

The CDC had their 1,000th tweet a while ago, and I accidentally deleted the tweet instead of un-retweeting it! I learned how to deal with a crisis situation and actually ended up figuring out a bunch of stuff about Twitter analytics.

Biggest Challenge

I'm an introvert, so I'm not always comfortable talking to people I don't know. Which is a BIG part of my job here at the CDC, so I've been learning how to step out of my comfort zone.

Lessons Learned

If you don't push yourself to continually get better and learn more, you'll stay stagnant.
