Chief Operating Officer
In my role as Chief Operating Officer, I work closely with the senior management team, staff, and Board of Directors to develop Net Impact's strategy and lead our organization to the next level of growth and impact. Currently, I oversee strategy and annual planning, evaluation and metrics, talent and administration, technology, conference and member programs..
Prior to joining Net Impact, I spent six years as a management consultant with the global strategy consulting firm Bain & Company, where I helped clients in a wide variety of industries on projects ranging from growth strategy to organizational and profit improvement. Among my favorites were projects with two major Bay Area nonprofits looking for ways to grow and maintain financial stability. I also launched and led Bain Community Works, an organization to oversee and promote the San Francisco and Palo Alto offices’ various community activities. I hold a Master and Bachelor of Engineering from the University of Michigan, and my MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business in 2006, with a certificate in Nonprofit Management. I was actively involved with Net Impact at Stanford, particularly as a member of the curriculum team for the 2005 Net Impact Conference.
I grew up wanting to be:
An Olympic gymnast.
What surprises me most about my career path is:
That I got two engineering degrees but never became an engineer.
The most satisfying thing about my work is:
Putting my management consulting and MBA skills to good use for a nonprofit organization I really believe in.
The last song I listened to was:
Bob Marley's "Rastaman Chant."
