About Me

Every day I get to tell the story of big, world-changing tech.

Today, it’s ocean robots, in my role as Head of Marketing at Liquid Robotics. Tomorrow? Let’s talk.

I am inspired by the potential for robotics to help us better understand our world, and in turn solve some of our planet’s biggest challenges.

Prior to Liquid Robotics, I held marketing leadership roles at Cisco in demand generation, strategy, product marketing, and digital experience. Earlier in my career, I led marketing for search/AI startup Intellext, and spent several years at Mullen Lowe managing advertising campaigns for Nextel Communications. I am also the Co-Founder of Gracious Exit, which offers simple, personal end-of-life planning services that help people prepare for the end, while living happily in the middle.

Two of the great loves of my life are my alma maters: Williams College and Chicago Booth. I continue to serve both as an active volunteer. For Williams, I currently serve on the Executive Committee of the Society of Alumni; as Co-Chair of the Archival Committee for our upcoming Society of Alumni Bicentennial Celebration; and on the Women’s Leadership Giving advisory committee. For Chicago Booth, I currently serve as President of the Chicago Booth Alumni Club of San Francisco. In addition to my alumni volunteer positions, I serve on the board of the Adventures for the Mind Foundation, where we award grants to organizations lifting up women and girls.

In my spare time, I can be found playing with my three boys, designing koozies and other swag for reunions, or mixing audio drops for my favorite fantasy football podcast.
