My road in life took a while to figure out.
Early in my career, I worked for GreenPeace. It taught me what it’s like to be in an organization that’s focused on mission.
Everything we did, we had to learn, so it was a moment of maturity for me to realize that it was time to leave GreenPeace.
I got a graduate degree in geographic information systems, which is the study of mapping social causes.
I learned that I’m not wired to sit in a cubicle all day, I’m much more extraverted.
I got hired to do bookkeeping for a project called PRX. I was 8 months pregnant; nobody hires a woman whose 8 months pregnant.
They started giving me more projects and things to work on and I eventually worked my way up into a role as chief operating officer.
Four years ago, I became the president and CEO.
Keep following my journey
