From corporate to startup
I quit my corporate job and broke into tech after cold-tweeting a founder CEO. Since then I’ve worked remotely for two early-stage, Silicon Valley startups:
Marco Polo, video messaging app (Kristen Bell and Gabrielle Union use it!). I worked on user insights, funky Android usability issues, & support. I helped start the knowledge base and co-wrote the first ~50 articles.
Good.Co, workplace personality assessment app (acquired by StepStone, a global job board based in Germany). I worked on marketing, community, content, & support.

I was part of a nonprofit startup where I made our website and did marketing. It didn’t work out how we imagined, but the experience was humbling.
Before that I worked in sales and corporate HR, where I:
- helped onboard 150+ new employees
- designed & implemented a digital performance review for ~275 employees
- helped implement recruiting software for the HR department (15 employees)
I have a degree in psychology from Virginia Commonwealth University (go Rams!).
- Love college basketball. I’m a big VCU fan!
- I’m fascinated by psychology, technology, & simple design
- I cut my own hair (going on 13 years now)
- I collect flashlights :)
