Best Story

Watch a short clip sharing my story here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ySau3uqqSk&t=6s

Origin Story

I was a journalism major who knew I didn't want to do traditional journalism. I landed my first job at a startup in Silicon Valley founded by one of the first 10 employees doing marketing/PR, and then later joined SlideShare (acquired by LinkedIn) and then a few years later, LinkedIn. I had no idea editorial roles in tech were a thing when I graduated, but I'm so happy I've found my niche. Over the last 9+ years, I found my passion leading editorial teams and building editorial strategies across both established tech companies and startups. I'm now a solopreneur - speaking, consulting, and teaching at LinkedIn Learning and Stanford Continuing Studies.
