I'm a Silicon Valley-based tech entrepreneur, startup investor and board member. I built two-award winning startup companies out of her college dorm room before getting recruited by LinkedIn. Most recently, I built Nextplay.ai, an HR tech company that serviced Fortune 500 companies. In 2019, I was named the AI entrepreneur of the year by VentureBeat and a Top 10 Woman in Cloud by Sheryl Sandberg and Cloud-now.
With 5 National Awards, expeditions to all seven continents, over 600 talks & panels, and three books, I was enlisted as a "Power Woman" alongside notables such as Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Gandhi, and Melinda Gates by Youth Incorporated magazine. I regularly features on media platforms such as CNET, Forbes, Inc, Yahoo! finance, ABC7, Huffington Post, Venture Beat, Business Insider among others. I organized & spoke at 3 TEDx conferences on risk-taking and entrepreneurship.
Outside of my startup world, I also enjoy producing documentary films and writing books to pay it forward.
