As part of the partner organization, she has helped her partners achieve record Cisco growth by helping them transition to a focus on business outcomes.
Outside of work, Isabella’s main focus is raising a healthy family. Isabella, her husband, and their two children spend their time together hiking, swimming, biking, and traveling the world.

When her hands aren’t full with work or family life, Isabella can be found in a nearby yoga studio, training for the next Tough Mudder, or surfing in SoCal or Hawaii.
