I am a US born woman with a background in marketing, fundraising and high tech recruiting. In my recruiting business, I help Silicon Valley venture-backed software and web 2.0 companies to identify and recruit technical talent for their product development teams. I am fortunate to work with many top engineers and inventors creating next generation internet technologies.
I am passionate about working for global human rights and women's empowerment. I am excited about volunteering my time and leveraging my talents in sales, recruiting and fundraising to assist grassroots organizations in forwarding their missions. I am a long-term supporter of the Global Fund for Women and have recently become active in developing PulseWire. I have recently begun helping PulseWire recruit technology advisors and developing a plan to foster collaboration on the site.
