Communications Manager

Global Advocacy

I love well-told stories and world travel, preferably when they're combined. I'm a writer and solo traveler who crossed the Sahara Desert on a camel, trotted into the Arctic Circle with a reindeer sled, traversed parts of India and Thailand on an elephant, and explored the Amazon Rainforest, among many other awe-inspiring trips. There's plenty more to see on my bucket list, and I'm committed to volunteering along the way.

I started my marketing career in technology when we still went cube-to-cube with floppy disks (called "Sneakernet" back then). These days I'm part of Cisco's Global Advocacy organization, a team that puts customers first in everything we do to strengthen customer loyalty and engagement, while helping Cisco sellers close deals faster.
