Born in California, raised in England and a mathematician from Cambridge, I built my career in technology in Silicon Valley. First in the semiconductor industry, then in enterprise software and big data analytics. I've written software, headed up marketing, sold, been a CEO twice and sat on several public and private boards. I've been through 2 IPOs (my own as CEO and also as a VP) and been on a public company board as we spun a $1B public company. Now I sit on boards and help entrepreneurs, especially women, whenever I can. Add to that a family and a never ending passion for travel and my life is full.
