My purpose is to foster community that empowers people of all abilities to dream bigger and do great things.
I'm pursuing my passions of inclusion and empowerment as the Founder of Diversability, an award-winning social enterprise to rebrand disability through the power of community.
In 2017, I was named a change maker to watch by Comcast NBCUniversal. Last year, I was named a Women of Influence Honoree by the New York Business Journal and one of Real Leaders Magazine's 100 visionary leaders, alongside Malala Yousafzai. I'm a member of the World Economic Forum Global Shapers Community and The Wall Street Journal's Women of Note. I have been featured in Forbes, the Guardian, the Ford Foundation, and more.
My previous experience is in web development, corporate finance and corporate development, recruiting, business journalism, and community management. I started my career in investment banking at Goldman Sachs where I worked on over $14 billion of announced transactions. Previously, I was the first San Francisco hire for the venture-backed coliving startup Common and was the Director of Business Development at REVOLT TV, the music network from Sean Diddy Combs.
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.
