TRANSLATE BETWEEN TECHNICAL & NON-TECHNICAL teams

I put my undergraduate training in diplomacy to work as a translator between technical and non-technical audiences. As a strategist at the world's largest aerospace company, I shepherded 100 engineers across 7 company sites to develop innovative science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) challenges based on the innovative, highly technical work they did at the company—yet simple and understandable enough for K-12 students. 

LEVERAGE DATA FOR INNOVATIon

I utilize data to develop strategies that align business objectives with long-term innovation and impact. When solving a problem, I take both a systems thinking and design thinking approach—of looking at both the big picture and the interconnected details of a situation—to synthesize data and develop actionable insights. 

CONNECT TALENT TO OPPOrtunitieS

I’m what Author and Professor Adam Grant calls a “Giver,” someone who makes “microloans of knowledge, skills, and connections to other people.” [3] A couple years ago, I founded The Give, a monthly list of social impact jobs and opportunities for changemakers which grew organically to nearly 2,000 subscribers from around the world. While The Give has evolved since then, I continue to offer career coaching and connections for mission-driven professionals.
