Senior International Product Manager

As top-level leader for a team of 16+ International Project Managers across 16 languages, my experience at wikiHow has effectively taught me to implement, manage, and scale a wide range of digital content initiatives, from visual, to recruitment, to team building and training, quality control, localization, ¡y más!

Stanford Dept Of International Relations

Research Assistant

I worked side-by-side with Prof. Stacy on her second book in regard to ASEAN intervention and policy of human trafficking in SE Asia through Stanford's IR Summer College, also coordinating her research trip to Jakarta. There, I presented my findings to fellow student researchers and professors, and went on to become a teacher assistant to her summer course on Intl Human Rights.

Tony's Fine Foods

Production Artist

This was an instrumental internship for me in terms of understanding what it means to "grind" with your head down. It was here that I got cozy with Adobe Photoshop, working to rescale, crop, and edit tens of thousands of product photos for the 1-person graphic team at a large-scale, private gourmet food distributor. And who kept it organized to a T? This girl.

College Restaurants, Inc

Technology/Social Media Asst

I started as a tech assistant to the owner of Stanford's most notable campus restaurants, but became so much more. The theme of my time with Ray Klein is best represented by this adage: "The reward for hard work is MORE WORK." The more I demonstrated I could do, the more was asked of me. I eventually became Ray's right-hand, and he became one of the great mentors of my life.

Intel Corporation

Project Management Intern/Social Media Asst

Intel first exposed me to an exceptionally high-functioning, large corporate company structure. It's sink or swim in terms of effectively communicating needs (especially as an intern!) in such a huge hierarchy. I learned to decide how to get my jobs, no matter how minor, done well without much direction.

Stanford University

Bachelor of Arts (BA), International Relations and Affairs

You're told to spend your four years in university pursuing your "passion". It felt like everyone had their path sorted definitively by Day 1. Luckily for me, I came to Stanford a blank slate. I was clueless. So, I pursued whatever challenged and stimulated me that quarter. IR was never on the menu for me before, but I was hungry. I wanted to study abroad, I wanted to write, and I wanted to dig into social justice issues, both domestic and global. Through what was a curious, but authentic, four years at Stanford, I found my two loves: international travel and creative writing.

Oakmont High School

Graduate with Business Distinction

For me, high school was a playground for testing my strengths and interests: 4 years of competitive soccer and captainship; Senior Class Representative; after-school job at the mall (my first foray into retail at Abercrombie & Fitch); pushing myself artistically; volunteering; practicing my Spanish; taking all the English classes and learning to take risk in my writing; and most importantly, discovering a love for high-level management and small business with a very unique program I ran for 2 years called Viking Printing Press.
