DISRUPTION PANEL DISCUSSION
10:00-10:45AM Washington Ballroom
Panel Discussion: Intentional Disruption in your Work, Home and Personal Life
Change can be thrust upon you, or you can be the driving force behind it when moving forward in your work or personal life. The women on our industry panel didn't settle for the status quo, but aimed, intentionally, for the next level of their careers. Hear their stories of personal and professional growth and learn how to positively disrupt your environment.  Featuring:
Cathe Cole-Sherburn | SVP, Default Operations, Trustee Corps
Julie Beyers | Partner, Heavner, Beyers & Mihlar
Marcy Ford | Managing Partner & EVP, Trott Law


INTERRUPTION PANEL DISCUSSION
11:15-12:00PM Washington Ballroom
Panel Discussion: Girl, Life Interrupted: Getting Back on Course
Whether it's a set-back or step forward, life can get in the way. Divorce, promotions, children, family and health: they can all derail or redirect your life without notice. When life interrupted the carefully laid plans of the women on this panel, they rerouted, redirected, and when necessary, rebuilt. Learn how they caught the curve balls and continued with the business of life. Featuring:
Michelle Gilbert Garcia, Esq. | Partner, Gilbert Garcia Group
Caren Castle, Esq. | Attorney, The Wolf Firm
Rhonda Nitsche | HSBC

Panel Discussion: Detonating Self-Doubt and Doubling Down on Your Best Self
How do you ignore the naysayers when it's the voice in your head? The women featured here learned to minimize the voice that says "You can't", "Don't try", "Why ask" and "Smile More" (okay-maybe that's an external voice). Hear the results--some are surprising--when they did, tried, asked and smiled--or didn't smile. Featuring: 
Kris Murtha, Esq., | Managing Attorney, New Jersey, KML Law Group
Catherine Long, Esq., | Shareholder, Baker Donelson
Jacqueline Comeau | EVP, Compliance and Enterprise Risk Management, LOGS
