Team Spotlight: Cheryl McGee Wallace

I am Cheryl McGee Wallace, a lawyer, specializing in cross-border financial services regulation and a proud relauncher. Over the years, I have shared my story quietly one-on-one with fellow-relaunchers preparing for their first interviews or seeking encouragement. Now it is my pleasure and honor to share my experience more broadly as a special advisor to iRelaunch and guest host for our "3, 2, 1 iRelaunch" podcasts. 

Most recently I've spent the past five years in London as a management consultant with PwC UK, where I advised global financial institutions and authored thought leadership on EU, UK and US regulations. In addition to a law degree, I also hold a master’s degree from Johns Hopkins SAIS in international economics with an emphasis on European integration. Proficient in Dutch (Flemish), French, and German, I leveraged my language skills during my relaunch. I count networking with alumni and industry professionals as keys to my relaunch story, which also included participation in the Goldman Sachs Returnship® Program. 

For more on my story, check out my guest spot on this edition of the "3, 2, 1 iRelaunch" podcast, my blog post "Don’t Talk Yourself Out of an Opportunity" and my podcast episode on "3, 2, 1, iRelaunch" by the same name.
