I'm a founding partner at Spero Ventures, an early stage venture capital firm that invests in the things that make life worth living: our well-being, work & purpose and human connection. I lead the firm’s investments in startups led by underrepresented founders. I advise portfolio CEOs and product leaders on design-thinking, org design, product strategy and hiring. I also lead our firm's marketing, branding & network building efforts.
I care deeply about designing products with empathy. I give talks around the globe on design-thinking and how to build products that customers love. I believe in building community and elevating women in tech. I'm on the Board of Women In Product (non-profit organization of 16k female product builders) and co-founded the Product Leader Summit (invite-only conference bringing together founders and VP-level product leaders).
I previously was a product executive at several early and mid-stage startups. I started my product career at eBay during a period of hyper-growth. I received my MBA from Harvard and BS in Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
My passions outside of work include poker, Stanford football, cooking, throwing dinner parties, traveling, and spending time with my husband and 3 boys.
