Meet me at the intersection of innovation and government.
In a nutshell: I am all about Government, Tech & Entrepreneurship | #CA native #DC transplant
Originally from California, I now live in Washington D.C. [Who moves away from CA? this girl did :) ]
After graduating UC Berkeley with a simultaneous degree - a BA in Political Science and a BS in Business Administration from the Haas School of Business, I moved to Washington D.C. to learn more about how our nation's government operates. From advising the Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee on domestic and foreign affairs legislation to implementing innovative outreach strategies that brought together government, business and non-profit organizations, I developed a unique understanding of the private and public sectors.
During my 4 years working on Capitol Hill, I saw the tech barriers elected officials face when trying to engage with today's tech savvy population. Now I am on a mission to enable elected officials on the federal, state and local level to be on today's mobile platform, revolutionizing the way elected officials and the public connect.
