Need I say more?



I get itchy feet and must travel! Take me to a city I've never been before or take me to Paris.

Gaiam TV

Digital Marketing Manager

It was in this job that I found a professional mentor that changed the way I view my career trajectory. She helped me navigate the role of "working mom" and staying sane (and continues to do so). It was an incredible ride and opportunity to be involved in the early stages of launching Gaiam TV as highly competitive and successful SVOD platform.


University of Kwa-Zulu Natal

Masters Degree, Development & Social Policy

I had been living in Durban, South Africa for 3 years using my marketing and operations background working with non-profits and companies trying to make a difference in the country. While I had a deeply practical understanding of developing world challenges, I desired a deeper theoretical understanding of development and social policy. The School of Development Studies was world renowned at the time, and in my back yard. So I spent two years studying under incredible professors and spent 3 months at the United Nations Research Institute of Social Development, contributing to social policy research.
