How do you keep being frum out of your work life?

I’m a frum woman (Bais Yaakov graduate) working in a very professional, high-intensity workplace (think consulting for example). I am the only ultra Orthodox Jew most of my coworkers have ever met.

I find it difficult to separate my being frum out of my professional personality. Being frum touches on so many different aspects of life – philosophy, outlook, hobbies, metaphors, language, aspirations – even social skills! – and I feel very different on a deep level. I feel like my coworkers think I’m an alien from Mars, not in a good way. I sometimes feel like I should quit my job and be a chumash teacher in a Bais Yaakov because that’s a lot closer to my personality.

Have any folks had this problem? What did you do about it?
