ABOUT | YOU FOUND ME

I am obsessed with accelerating social change. My passion, expertise and two decades of experience are anchored at the intersection of technology and human empowerment. At my core, I build and empower global communities to solve critical problems at scale.

From making education accessible, to democratizing art, to empowering the largest open source community in the world – I’m driven by increasing global participation that fundamentally advances society.

Today, I am the Founder of The Coaching Fellowship, an international non-profit which nurtures and brings together the world’s most extraordinary young women leaders of social impact. We provide pro-bono coaching and fellowship to young women leaders at a crucial point in their career to build their leadership capacity and magnify their impact.

I am also Chief of Staff to the Executive Chairwoman of Mozilla.

Every day I set out to create meaningful change by empowering people to live their greatness.


VITA | ALL ABOUT ME

My career spans two decades, some of my past work includes senior leadership roles at global brands such as eBay, Mozilla, Sothebys, and Gooru, reaching hundreds of millions of users through all stages of growth. I founded two consulting practices helping entrepreneurs and communities expand globally, and brought two US based software companies to EMEA.

I have founded and run large international teams, expanded organizations globally, built products, ran marketing departments and grown large scale open source communities. I founded two non-profits, and I’m a certified CPCC ACC executive coach, and leadership expert.

Little known facts: I worked on a factory floor for three years making hats, had two start-ups, owned a contemporary art gallery in Berlin, Germany, and spent two years racing cars.

Here’s a comprehensive list of my past experiences. You can also view my LinkedIn profile for more information.
