Story
Tagline
Curator of startups. Steward of Tech.
Introduction
As one of the first team members (fifth employee) at RocketSpace, an Open Innovation Campus in San Francisco, I was instrumental in helping the company grow our customer base by more than 150%. I am proud to be a key player in building and promoting the internationally recognized RocketSpace brand. I helped our team implement the Accelerator Program that has made RocketSpace a “hit factory” for technology startups. 




Before becoming General Manager, I was the Innovation Campus Manager at RocketSpace. In that role, I led sales and also expanded the Accelerator Program, which has successfully helped tech startups “blast off” by linking them with Venture Capitalists, corporate innovation teams at Fortune 1000 companies, and with other tech startups. To accomplish this, I developed strong personal relationships and networks across the tech startup ecosystem. In promoting RocketSpace, I have qualified, interviewed and vetted hundreds of seed-funded tech startups from around the world, and influenced over 100 top tech startups to join the RocketSpace community, resulting in revenue growth of over 150%.

As General Manager, my role has expanded to include responsibility for the entire customer experience, from first contact with prospective tech startups through the ongoing membership of the startup in RocketSpace Suites. This customer satisfaction role includes hiring and management of staff, sales, and customer service.

Outside of my “day job,” I co-founded the Startup Ski Bus, and a 501(c)3 non-profit, “Yuppie Friday,” which hosts networking gatherings for young Bay Area entrepreneurs and professionals to socialize in support of local charities. I also actively serve as a volunteer rescuer, team leader, and instructor for the Marin County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue team. (I was the first rescuer to reach the 72-year-old hunter who miraculously survived 19 days in the remote Mendocino County Wilderness.)
