My purpose is to foster community that empowers people of all abilities to dream bigger and do great things.
Named a "change maker to watch", one of "100 visionary leaders", and a "woman of influence", I am the Founder of Diversability (rebranding disability through community) and the Founder of the Awesome Foundation Disability Chapter (monthly micro-grants to disability projects), where I am a speaker, diversity & inclusion community builder, and inclusion and empowerment advocate.
I have been a cryptocurrency investor since 2013 and am an Advisor to an international VC firm.
I've been featured in Marie Claire, Forbes, the Guardian, the Ford Foundation, The Wall Street Journal, and more, and have written for Business Insider, Fortune, and Levo League. I'm a member of the World Economic Forum Global Shapers Community and The Wall Street Journal's Women of Note.
My previous experience is in web development, corporate finance and corporate development, recruiting, business journalism, and community management. Previously, I worked at Bloomberg and venture-backed startups in real estate and music. I started my career in investment banking at Goldman Sachs, where I worked on over $14 billion of announced transactions.
I graduated with honors from Georgetown University and currently live in San Francisco.
As an advocate for women in business/leadership and disability inclusion, I have spoken internationally at colleges, conferences, nonprofits and other public events. I would love to speak at your next event. Contact me to get started.
