With 20 years of experience and the last 10 years in startups and early-stage Venture Capital, I am a People Operations Executive and former Operating Partner at Boldstart Ventures. As a People Operations Leader, I have built and scaled three growth stage tech startups (both B2C and B2B), owning People Operations end-to-end (Human Resources, Talent Acquisition, Employee Experience/Culture, L&D, Facilities). I architect people programs (for example: codifying core values, structured recruiting processes and hiring, onboarding, benefits and comp, leveling, performance management, DEIB, professional development and leadership coaching) from scratch and ensure that they not only tie back to the business, but are bespoke to a company’s culture. Additionally, I triage issues in existing People Operations departments and drive change through strategy, training and executing on creative, data-driven solutions.

‍I lean on four additional things in my work: pattern recognition from my experience and advisory engagements, the ability to build trusted relationships across an organization, a large network of talent, experts and vendors, and a coaching mindset.
