Previously and for over a decade, I was honored to serve as a co-leader of Echoing Green, a groundbreaking angel investor in start-up social change organizations around the world. While at Echoing Green, I helped support the launch of over 250+ organizations in 70 countries, and also developed new innovative programs, including the Work on Purpose program to evolve the way in which people make their biggest life and work decisions and Direct Impact to prepare the next generation of board leaders. While at Echoing Green, I authored two books on purpose and social entrepreneurship.
I began my career at Do Something in where I served as the National Program Director and created the Do Something Award to celebrate and financially support the most outstanding young leaders in America generating change in their communities.
I am an entrepreneur-in-residence at the start-up Future Laboratories, a social innovation R&D lab to invent new solutions to deeply entrenched problems in the world. I'm also a business developer consultant for The Women’s Building, a groundbreaking new project led by the NoVo Foundation to transform a former women’s correctional facility in downtown Manhattan to a 100,000 square feet physical home for the girls’ and women’s rights movement.
