About the Episode

Kristy is a growth-minded professional with a long career in credit card product management. I've always been terrified of the idea of product management involving physical things, but Kristy assures me that it's just as fun, if not more, as far as she's concerned. She spent a long time at Bank of America and is now working at a smaller bank, although smaller obviously still means they have loads of money in a massive vault.

Kristy also talks about her growth mindset, how she's never afraid to stick her hand up and say she doesn't know something (because half the time, no one knows) and why communication and networking are so important to developing a career.

Kristy is also the co-host of a The Opposite of Small Talk, a podcast for curious people. Go give it a listen!
