As the Chief Marketing Officer and Head of Developer Relations for Pangea, I am responsible for the adoption and growth of our new product category, Security Platform as a Service (SPaaS). This is the industry’s first solution that enables software developers to incorporate security functions into their applications with a simple set of APIs.
I have 15+ years of experience across enterprise, SMB, gaming, consumer, and fintech industries, working with companies of all sizes – from some of the smallest startups to some of the largest global enterprise organizations. Prior to my role at Pangea, I was VP Developer Relations Strategy and Experience at Cisco, where I was responsible for creating new capabilities and programming for DevOps, Site Reliability Engineers, cloud architects, and developers working toward a cloud-first world. I also led Cisco DevNet, Cisco's 500,000-plus-strong developer community, which features programs that catalyze innovations and accelerate automation and digital transformation throughout the industry. Prior to Cisco, I led developer relations at Intuit, Yodlee, Atlassian, Roblox and MongoDB.
As someone who is passionate about and committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in our industry and beyond, I have created and sponsored multiple initiatives and volunteer-driven programs to advance underrepresented groups in tech. At Microsoft and Atlassian, I launched a diversity speaker series and peer mentoring program to empower and support women in technology careers.
I previously served on the board of the Drupal Association and am the co-author of three patents. I graduated cum laude and hold a BBA in Business Management from Golden Gate University.
