Chief Social Impact, Twilio
I love the intersection of business and doing good. I like spreadsheets as much as thinking about big visions. I think nonprofits are some of the most innovative organizations on the planet solving some of the world's biggest problems. And I'd like to help them with my skills and experience.
I'm energized by using a company’s unique assets to create positive impact on the world. In the past 20+ years, I've driven social and environmental change while working at companies such as Twilio, Google, and Yahoo!. I'm focused on scaling the impact of nonprofits through communications and unlocking the potential for software developers to code a better world.
Prior to Twilio while at Google and Yahoo, I helped launch new businesses in Africa and India to provide fast access to the Internet, engaged tens of millions of people in environmental programs, and raised millions of dollars for disaster response. I also have experience in the nonprofit sector at Business for Social Responsibility, am an Aspen Institute Catto Fellow, and started my career at the engineering firm Tetra Tech. I hold a BA in Human Biology / Environmental Management from Stanford University and an MBA from the University of California, Berkeley.
