As the Chief People Officer at IDEO, I bring extensive expertise across the full talent experience and a strong commitment to fostering equity, diversity, and inclusion in the workplace. My background spans early childhood education, professional services, and creative agencies.

Throughout my professional journey, I've made significant contributions to talent acquisition and retention strategies. While at Ketchum Communications, I pioneered the development of "LaunchPad," an innovative blind selection hiring process that gained recognition from Fast Company for its effectiveness in reducing bias. Fueled by my commitment to fostering inclusivity, I also launched "Work Wider," to support the career development and hiring of underrepresented communities.
