She then led marketing prior to becoming the CEO’s Chief of Staff at Loudcloud, one of the first companies to offer software as a service (SaaS).

Since then, she has gone on to help hundreds of companies navigate their go-to-market strategies as a Partner at Silicon Valley Product Group (SVPG), a consulting group, where she worked with companies including: Google, Atlassian, EMC, Symantec, and Workiva among many others.
