Co-Founder & CEO
I run a nonprofit that gives low-income individuals and nonprofits access to repurposed technology.
Upholding a Cause and Belief
Day to Day
As the CEO, it’s my main job to work ON the business and not IN the business. I oversee all day-to-day operations, employees and PR, making sure that everyone has what they need to do their jobs. I communicate with our managers to make sure we are all on the same page with the company’s vision, mission, and overall direction. I lead the implementation of the company's strategic plan and ongoing operations. My day is a lot of strategy planning, communication, and lending a lot of support.
Skills & Qualities Beyond School
You need to have a sense of empathy. Teamwork is essential. Realize that it takes other people to support you and your vision to make things happen. It's not a one-man show. Be tenacious and determined.
