Board Member at Large
I am a marketer with almost 20 years of experience working for companies such as Adobe, American Express, F5 Networks, Microsoft and Starbucks.
I believe in the power of storytelling. One of the reasons I joined the Kids Co board is because I believe they have a powerful story to tell and an incomparable place in our community. As the mother of a 3 ½ year old, I am hyper-aware of the childcare challenges that face working parents today. I am excited to be part of the group spreading the word about this great community resource.Close Bio
