I am fortunate to have experienced a diverse work history. Having had the chance to work in Europe, China, and America provides me with unique cultural insights regarding the best ways to function and lead within varied organizational structures, as well as, how to manage a diverse workforce, and navigate competitive marketplaces. I have deep subject-matter expertise in Sales Enablement, GTM strategy/scaling, outbound pipeline generation, and tech-stack posture.
I’m an experienced leader with a history of balancing the needs of public and private stakeholders in legal, business, education, and military environments. I've led teams of up to two hundred and fifty people while working in extremely high-pressure situations during my military service. My employment history includes The United Nations, Bonneville Power Administration, The Office of United States Senator Jeff Merkley, The United States Army and Army Reserve, as well as an edTech company I seed-funded and co-founded in Shanghai, China (Universal Utility Tutoring). Since selling UUT in 2018, I've worked at Dyad (edTech), Sisense (Analytics/BI + Forbes Cloud 100), and Onna (Knowledge Integration).
CHIEF OF STAFF
As a second-year MBA student at Darden School of Business, UVA, I am enthusiastic about the dynamic and ever-evolving world of startups, venture capital, and investment. With a background in engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur, I have spent over 5 years honing my skills in product development and strategic analytics in the financial services industry. I am particularly fascinated by the intersection of finance, technology, and AI, and the potential for innovation that arises when these fields converge. The very thought of identifying, nurturing, or helping grow high-potential ventures that use cutting-edge technologies excites me.
