Originally an East Bay Area native, I owe much of my life’s success to sports! Soccer helped carry me through Carondelet HS and then on as a Division I scholar-athlete at UC Berkeley. Being a Golden Bear has brought many amazing relationships, perspectives, and opportunities into my life!
After graduating from Cal, I continued my passion for the game by coaching at the college level, first at Boise State University and then at San Francisco State University. I moved my coaching focus to youth player development taking on the Technical Director and College Recruiting Advisor role at Pleasanton RAGE Girls Soccer Club. After a few years, I finally decided to take a big career jump and landed in the Tech Industry.
I’ve worked in both the start-up world (VitalConnect) as well as the corporate landscape (Amazon and Meta) on HR, C-Suite, Recruiting, and Engineering teams. Living in different states and working with all kinds of people has helped shape my worldview. My family and I recently moved back to the Bay Area, which has brought me full circle to education and athletics here at Menlo!
Through all these experiences, my greatest joy has been creating supportive cultures, leading to building resilient teams that achieve meaningful goals. You can still find me playing, coaching, and mentoring as much as possible. But my favorite pastime is adventuring with my son Xander, my partner Daniel Hicker and our fur baby Gracie!
