From engineer to boardroom leader, I bring 20+ years of experience driving growth for startups and Fortune 100 companies like Dell, Citi, and IBM. My career is a story of growth. I attribute my success to my curiosity, engineering background, and marketing savvy. Always up for a challenge, I have managed global P&Ls of up to $3 billion, achieved successful exits for four companies, and even built a thriving marketing consultancy from the ground up. The secret sauce? Striking the perfect balance between planning and action. I craft data-driven strategies, lead with empathy to build strong teams, and execute to deliver results and exceed expectations (with innovation, content, and customer experience awards to prove it!). My expertise is in high demand. Guest lecturing at Columbia Business School provides a platform to share insights and inspire future leaders. I also am quoted in and contribute to influential publications like the Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, Forbes, and more. My journey in marketing began with a spark of ingenuity and a yearning to understand the human connection with products. Equipped with an engineering background, I dove headfirst into the world of startups as a coder. However, a deeper fascination soon emerged – the art and science of translating customer needs into successful products and experiences. This realization propelled me into product and marketing leadership roles. My commitment to excellence extends beyond my professional endeavors. I contribute to the advancement of women in business by serving as the Board Chair of Columbia Business School's Women's Circle, a robust network of over 14,000 alumnae. Mentoring startups through the NASDAQ Entrepreneurial Center allows me to share my expertise and empower the next generation of entrepreneurs. This pursuit of knowledge doesn't stop at formal education. I am a continuous learner, constantly seeking ways to expand my skill set. My commitment to staying at the forefront of the industry is evidenced by my various certifications in business analytics, Python, and innovation.
