Day Job

I work as a product manager for Google Maps, bringing Google's amazing geospatial data to 3rd party developers. I specialize in the the early stages of product development: finding product-market fit, wrangling an ambiguous problem space into a product definition, and rallying an engineering team around a vision and roadmap.

Recidiviz

Outside of work, I’m passionate about criminal justice reform. I currently direct a project called Recidiviz, which is a platform for tracking granular recidivism metrics in real time. Recidiviz aims to make it easy for states and policy makers to take a data-driven approach to reducing crime, reducing costs, and improving outcomes for inmates and communities.

Technical

I studied Symbolic Systems at Stanford University. Symbolic Systems is like Computer Science with more Artifical Intelligence and a better name. Now I work for Google and frustrate myself with data visualization on the side. See more here.

Creative

I've been making art since forever. I concentrated in Human Computer Interaction, dabble in hard-core Product Design, and do lots of circus. I also make junk metal sculptures. You can see more art here.

We asked five of these awesome women to share a bit more about advice they had received along the way, and advice they want to give. Here's what they had to say.

Olympics: The scandalous, weird and wonderful

LONDON - The values underpinning the games are certainly noble, but on the surface, the Olympics sometimes look like a soap opera — security breeches, social media snafus, and dreams crushed on camera.
