  1. I am submitting a self nomination.  I am currently the Chief Operating Officer at Mavenlink, a high-growth technology company that offers business application software to Professional Services firms. Mavenlink has ~500 employees across 8 offices globally, has raised over $100 million in venture capital, and has over 1,000 customers. I oversee Mavenlink’s global business operations function and am responsible for overseeing Mavenlink’s strategy, analytics, and go-to-market operations. In addition to my current role, I oversaw the fundraising of nearly $100 million in equity and debt capital for Mavenlink. Prior to Mavenlink, I was a venture and growth equity investor at Goldman Sachs, where I was responsible for sourcing, diligencing, and executing technology investments. I drove the diligence that led to Goldman Sachs’ early investment in Mavenlink and ultimately served as an advisor to Mavenlink’s CEO in my role as Board Observer. During my tenure as an investor, I evaluated several hundred technology companies for growth investments and developed a passion for working with founders to help them build and scale their companies. I also previously served as an investment banker at Goldman Sachs, where I advised technology companies on IPOs, private placements, and strategic M&A transactions. I am a contributor to and executive sponsor for Mavenlink’s Diversity and Inclusion initiatives. I oversaw Mavenlink’s COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Initiative, which won an International Stevie Award. In prior roles, I’ve contributed to Goldman Sachs’ Women’s Network and State Farm’s Youth Advisory Board.        My strengths include: (1) strategic development and execution, (2) operational and financial orchestration, (3) analytical and critical thinking, and (4) general leadership.      I hold a degree from Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. Originally from Colorado, I love all things outdoors and am an avid skier, hiker, and triathlete.
