EMERGING TECH LEADER

My zen is when innovation meets data-driven decision making

I love to ramble about all things tech whether it's on my blog, in the media, on podcasts, or at conferences.

The rambling continues at my day job, where I advise clients on how to implement, operationalize, and optimize emerging technologies.

EMERGING TECH SPEAKER

I have always been inspired by technology’s impact on humanity.

As a girl tinkering with our family’s Commodore 128, I became fascinated with how lines of code can transform into a mechanism for personal communication and entertainment. 

In college, I learned how things like machine learning give us insight into complicated issues like climate change. 

And today, I get excited about how technology can help bring us together to solve new problems. 

Whether it’s Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things or Quantum Computing, we have an exciting opportunity to create positive change with technology.

EMERGING TECH WRITER

Read my latest ramblings

Whether it’s a cocktail party or a networking event, the inevitable question always comes, “What do you do for a living?” My oft-repeated response is to rattle off some variation of I help organizations implement technology to create business value, blah, blah, blah. And then, as a preemptive attempt to keep them from being bored to tears, I throw in that I also do “fun stuff” like emerging tech.

And that is the usual spot in the conversation where their eyes shift from glazed-over to twinkling. People love to gab about the exciting new stuff like self-driving cars, smart homes, and quantum machines. If I am not careful, I will get trapped in an endless conversation and miss the hors d’oeuvres.

But the truth is, I could gab about this stuff for hours on end too...
