Women Taking the Lead began working with Christina Carter when she was 7 months into a new role at a mid-sized credit union. This position and organization was consciously sought after by her to round out her credit union experience, in preparation of pursuing a career goal of becoming the CEO of a Maine-based credit union.
She reported that she was, “overextending and taking on too much; feeling guilty spending time with family or taking time off of work.” Christina admitted that while she already had the competence to become the CEO of a credit union, she lacked the confidence she knew she would need in the interview process and beyond.
