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 others. 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.
