I’m a Silicon Valley-based HR leader, executive coach, and author.
I joined DoorDash in 2016 to build and scale our People Operations (HR+Facilities) team. During my time here, I’ve helped grow the team 6x during a period when the employee population has grown over 10x (250 to 2,500+). I currently lead HR for our Engineering and Product teams.
Before joining DoorDash I worked at LinkedIn on the HR Business Partner, Compensation, and Recruiting teams. Prior to that, I worked on Wall Street as an investment banker where I advised executives, entrepreneurs, and technology companies.
I am a trained executive coach and have coached leaders at a variety of companies including Google, Electronic Arts, DoorDash, Procter & Gamble, and Lyft.
In 2015, I wrote the bestselling career strategy book Not Your Parents’ Workplace: Critical Lessons for Interns and Young Professionals. I’ve written for a range of publications, including Forbes, Inc., Mashable, The Muse, Fast Company, and the Los Angeles Times.
I also publish a monthly newsletter called Progression that shares books and articles to help folks looking to take their career to the next level.
