Born and raised in Los Angeles, but moved to San Francisco for college. I have been living in San Francisco for a little over a decade now and am absolutely in love with the city.
I spend most of my time on the computer for work and playing games, but on the weekends I go to the beach with my dog or hike Mt. Tamalpais.
During the winter, you’ll find me snowboarding the slopes of Tahoe.
Favorite Places and Local Businesses
What moment in your career are you the proudest of?
When I received my first Yelp review. I was working at a veterinary hospital at the time when a woman called asking to speak to a supervisor. It was a worried dog mom and I walked her through a surgery process. She said she spoke to other hospitals and did not feel comfortable with her fur baby in their care. I spent about an hour on the phone with her, just calming her nerves, and answering any questions she may have had. With this online review I learned that, not every transaction needs to be all about business and being a kind human being makes a huge impact.
What trends are you most excited about right now?
I am extremely excited about the growth in women gamers! With so many streaming platforms, more and more women are becoming involved with the online gaming community. I love to see that community continue to grow in hopes that it will end gender bias in gaming. I have always loved gaming but felt out of place online with the toxic masculinity. Now that it has become more common, I am able to connect with other female gamers! I love women supporting other women.
What founder inspires you the most?
Melinda Gates founder of Pivotal Ventures and co-founder of Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. She is an incredibly brilliant woman who has accomplished so much in her lifetime. Melinda absolutely crushed a male dominated world of engineers and continues to encourage more women to join this field. Even with such great success and wealth, she never lost sight of her integrity and her focus on bettering lives around the world.
How do you make your worklife better?
Taking a few seconds here and there to enjoy little things. One of the best things about working from home is that I can work beside my dog. I’ll just take a mental break to smother him with kisses or throw a toy around. I also like to open the window and let the breeze in, I wasn’t able to do that working in a high-rise downtown.
