One of our new ventures is a community called Lean Impact, which helps social good organizations use Lean Startup principles. We're hosting our last Summit this year in DC on March 26th. Click here to learn more.

I'm the founder of Lesbians Who Tech. Lesbians Who Tech is a community of queer women in and around tech (and the people who love them). We hosted our first-ever Lesbians Who Tech Summit with over 800 attendees from all over the world. Click here to learn more.

Previously, I was a senior director at Equality California, the largest statewide LGBTQ organization in the U.S, and worked on the No on Prop 8 campaign. I'm also an advisor and investor in Solar Network Solutions, a woman-owned solar tech company and Retention Grid.
