Self-Employed

Speaker & Strategist

I've been listed by Fast Company and Business Insider for my social influence, I'm an expert in leveraging networks, building engaged communities and positioning strategies for rising above the networking noise, both online and off. I provide direct, practical and actionable guidance, I empower my clients with frameworks to take networking opportunities to the next level of growth. “Stop committing random acts of networking” is my frequent (and favorite) advice. I appear regularly as an investor panelist on CNBC’s Power Pitch, and I'm sought out for my unique perspective into networking and community building, addressing members of the European Commission and audiences at SXSW, IEEE Women in Leadership, 2014 PGA Championship, The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism, Philly Women in Tech Summit, amongst others. My social media influence has been sought out by for projects with The New Yorker, HSBC, Coca-Cola, P&G, ECCO and New York Life. I'm the Chief Technology Ambassador for the YWCA of NYC’s Geek Girls Club.

The Confidence Edition

You don’t get what you want, learn a new skill or get tapped for new projects without hard work, curiosity and hustle. Put in the time, block & tackle the tough stuff, grab the stretch assignments – without being asked or told to - are the ways you learn, then know your shit.
