I oversee the recruiting operations and talent development initiatives for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.
My talent acquisition portfolio includes overseeing our application system and processes, choosing our recruiting tools and channels, designing hiring workflows and interview plans, as well as running candidate sourcing support for our teams (e.g. analytics, field, operations, digital, engineering & product).
My talent development portfolio includes coordinating our executive coaching program, conducting management trainings, and administering and analyzing staff surveys to make sure feedback is flowing smoothly within and between our teams.

Chief Executive Officer
I cofounded ReWork in 2011 to make it easier for talented people to build careers working on society's most pressing challenges.
In the years since, ReWork has supported tens of thousands of talented professionals with their career design and job transitions, and has worked with hundreds of purpose-driven hiring managers to find the right person for their team.
ReWork provides recruiting services to organizations that are transforming industries like education, public health, community development, financial inclusion, and international development, among many others.
I stepped down as CEO of ReWork in early 2015, when I was asked to join Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.
My networks are entrepreneurial and impact-driven.
My background is in economics and ecology - complex systems.
