EDUCATION University of Arizona (BA), Santa Clara University (MBA)
PROFESSIONAL EVOLUTION I’ve always taken the approach of finding areas of the business where I saw opportunity to contribute and then raising my hand to volunteer. Ultimately, that led me to gaining experience in just about every function of our business, and that’s what prepared me to be the CEO.
SOMETHING SURPRISING My wife and I made a pact to visit at least 100 countries.
PHILANTHROPIC PASSION There’s a critical need for STEM education around the world, and in particular, for correcting some of the biases that keep girls out of STEM.
