I spent the years after I graduated college searching for work that was meaningful to me.
My journey involved a wide range of jobs and projects - from building rain barrels and installing home energy efficiency upgrades, to leading backcountry trail crews in US National Parks & ecotourism trips in Latin America, to writing grant proposals and business plans for new nonprofits. This path gave me deep empathy for people who have been in search of work that they feel is worthy of their potential - as well as into how best to position career paths like this to prospective employers
Over the years I became convinced that the phenomenon of meaningful work - of prioritizing balance, fulfillment, health, and adventure in one's work - is one that the world needs badly, and is ready for.
After graduate school in 2011 I cofounded ReWork
, which puts the world's most talented people to work on the society's most pressing challenges. In April of 2015 I stepped down from the role of ReWork's CEO in order to serve as Hillary Clinton's Director of Talent Acquisition & Development, to build and field the strongest campaign team possible to compete in the 2016 election.
