Area of Expertise
Cross-functional collaboration in international teams. EStrategy. Marketing. Partnerships. International. Sustainability. Social Impact. Career development.
I fundamentally believe we do well by doing good, and we find the highest impact opportunities in the fast moving world of tech – responsibly developed and deployed.
Since my start as part of the Macintosh launch team at Apple Computer, I’ve helped launch whole new ways of living and doing – communication technologies, education technologies, photography and journalism tools. My sandbox has always been global, and my focus largely on building partnerships to scale revenue and impact.
You might describe my experience as a 360º: I’ve been an executive in operating roles for companies large and small (start-ups), a journalist and producer following business leadership and impact, and a strategy consultant to investors, executive teams, and founders. I’ve had the honor of working for leading organizations such as Acumen, Stanford, McKinsey, Singularity and now Salesforce.
On the non-profit side, I have served as a board member of several education, environmental and media non profits, and as an advisor to a CEO member network, a global social entrepreneur network, and a women’s leadership council. As a board member and advisor, I have raised millions of dollars for environmental, arts, and education organizations.
More recently, I led international partnerships at Singularity (SU). SU is an educational community which uses exponential technologies (AI, AR, VR, blockchain and numerous med/bio tech breakthroughs) to help global leaders build a better future. In under a year, we turned around a struggling division, expanded the network by over 30%, and achieved 90% profitability.
I am now with Salesforce, building a new partnership model with the major management consulting firms – McKinsey, Bain, BCG. Together we are helping organizations, across sectors and across geographies, plan and manage their digital transformation journeys.
