April Boyd is VP and Head of Global Public Policy At Verizon Media. April shares her fascinating career in politics, from working as Press Secretary and Chief of Staff for Rep. Tauscher, to Chief of Staff for Sen. John Kerry, to being appointed as Assistant Secretary for Legislative and Intergovernmental Affairs at the Commerce Department. She shares her story of being the then-youngest Senate-confirmed nominee while having a newborn baby. As she explains, work-life balance isn't something that comes with a job, but rather something you have to create for yourself. April gives advice on the importance of being bold, decisive, and taking pride in your work - with a dash of modesty for grounding.
