I am a serial problem solver with a passion for continuous learning. I enjoy working with dynamic organizations with a strong mission where I can build, streamline, and optimize operational systems and infrastructure to achieve internal strategic objectives and facilitate unparalleled impact.
For the last eight years I have been working at the intersection of tech, corporate, education, non-profit, and public sectors focused on building and scaling entrepreneurship, talent development, and sustainability programming. That sounds like a mouthful, but essentially I’ve been focused on operations and strategy for a 501(c)(6) organization focused on economic development impact.
My unofficial title is the "Minister of Culture.” I have a deep passion for building and developing teams and ensuring that the work experience serves to facilitate both professional and programmatic growth.
I have worked alongside LA Based tech company and support institutions like Snap Inc., Riot Games, Boingo Wireless, Grid110, and Techstars, to name a few, to launch several pilot programs and partnerships to connect underserved and diverse community college youth and entrepreneurs to the tech sector. I also have deep experience working with and managing contracts for community colleges, and Federal/State institutions such as the Small Business Administration (SBA), Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) and the California Governor’s Office of Business Affairs (GOBIZ).
