I was referred to THNK by Sharon Chang.
I am the Managing Director of Civic Hall, a one-of-a-kind collaborative community center in New York City that advanced the use of technology for the public good. Prior to joining Civic Hall, I served as CEO of NY Tech Alliance, a non-profit organization supporting New York’s growing technology community, and I was the organizer of NY Tech Meetup, the world’s largest Meetup group. Before moving to New York, I was the CEO of Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council in Southern California, where I supported a community of 75 staff, 5,000 volunteers, and 15,000 girls. I was one of only 15 women selected to participate in Seth Godin’s Female Entrepreneur MBA (FeMBA) in 2010. My writing has been featured on the Harvard Business Review blog, Forbes.com, The Next Web, The Huffington Post and in a weekly column in The Press-Enterprise. I also speak frequently on the tech sector, the future of work, and organizational development and culture at events such as PopTech, SXSW, and TEDx.
