Fourth generation Californian(rare- breed with entrepreneurialism deep in my blood!), loving mother of 2 amazing daughters who are changing the world just by being in it, beloved wife, soul-mate and partner of John A Byrne, energetic and determined leader who is actively engaged in bridging the for and non-profit realms with humor and panache!
I've worked in leadership positions at blue chip brands(Businessweek, Fast Company and Inc.) start-ups and non-profits(Tides, George Lucas Education Foundation, World Pulse).
Possess a knack for rainmaking, partnerships, seeing things differently and making non-believers believe. Have great fun coming up with solutions to tricky pickles.
In reading the rich community conversation, what bubbles up to me is: we want to give women and girls choices. Education is one of the most effective ways to help individuals help themselves in a sustainable manner. I reached out to The School Fund
Justin, Terrific point! I work at World Pulse, a digital platform for grassroots women leaders, where they come to find their voice as once heard, they are able to stand up, speak out , feel valued and gain independence. We have begun to see a number of "male allies" coming on board in the role of listener and are watching as much positive cultural change is beginning to come about in their local communities.
