Karen Zacharia is Chief Privacy Officer at Verizon. Karen followed her childhood aspiration of becoming a lawyer and shares her multifaceted (and globetrotting!) experiences, as she transitioned to working in house at Verizon over 27 years ago. The wisdom she gained during her career shines through, as she shares the importance of building confidence, asking for help, overcoming imposter syndrome, and taking care of your well being.
