About our guest:

Social media marketer by day, author by night and mother 24×7. I’d write all day but in my current professions—I take what I can get. I’ve lived and breathed Silicon Valley my entire life having grown up in Palo Alto, CA. I attended the prestigious all-girls school, Castilleja and my family was immersed in commercial and residential real estate development and local politics.

I innocently entered the high tech industry at the age of twenty through a summer job at a then small software company, Adobe Systems, Inc. My International Relations Degree from UC Davis provided me with a vast understanding of the world that I call upon quite frequently but it could not seduce me away from the adventures I found at home. For over a decade, I worked at Adobe and Apple in their Developer Relations organizations helping start-ups and strategic accounts bring technologies and products to market.

Today, I am a Director of Digital Marketing and Social Media Strategy for SAP. In this role, I stay on top of the hottest social media trends, actively blog, interact on social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Youtube and Snapchat), and co-host a weekly live-streaming video show. In my spare time, I dream up amazing stories about the insidious side of Silicon Valley and find the time to write them down.

This adventure I call life, fuels my creativity for developing unique stories that I hope you enjoy reading.
