I currently do marketing and business development for early stage (pre- or early-revenue) Internet startups including a Facebook dating application and an e-commerce platform; I also coordinate events, including TEDxSF (Planning Committee), Geo-Loco (July 2010 at SF Mission Bay Conference Center), and Hacks & Hackers Unite iPad development meetup (May 2010 at KQED in SF).
Last year, I ran marketing and product management for Soar BioDynamics, an early-stage healthcare software company incorporating leading practices with technology to deliver personalized screening to men and their physicians.
Prior to this role, I was in communications and strategy for Charles Schwab and provided career transition counseling on a less formal basis. My prior experience includes product & project management, venture capital, executive search and business development for a web startup. I was Director of Mentoring for the Association of Women MBAs (AWM), a mentor for the Global Social Venture Business Plan Competition (GSVC) at Berkeley and the BASES Business Plan competition at Stanford.
I am also an active participant in the Evian Group's Open World Initiative (OWI) which explores and promotes free global trade. I was also a board member of the Stanford Professional Women and Chair of the Board for Partners in Hope. I received an MBA from UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business, and a Bachelor's degree in history from Stanford. I also completed a fellowship with the Coro Community Fellows Program, and one year of seminary coursework at both Fuller Theological seminary and the Faculte Libre de Theologie Evangelique outside of Paris. Last but not least, I am a certified Fitness Instructor, currently teaching at San Francisco Bay Club and ClubOne; previously I taught at Pinnacle Fitness, YMCA, Reach Fitness and Fitness USA.
