I am a seasoned Silicon Valley marketing leader, and a former journalist and editor. I’ve spent the past several years heading digital programs, demand generation and ABM for cybersecurity companies including Preempt Security, Imperva, and leading QA and penetration testing company, QASource. I co-founded SocialProse Media, a digital marketing agency, and was its president for more than five years. Before founding SocialProse, I was the Marketing Director at The Open Group, the world’s leading vendor-neutral IT standards and certifications body. My previous experience includes my work at PR agency Peppercomm San Francisco; my executive role at full-service marketing agency Shennum Green, Inc.; and my position as vice president of client services at e-agency, Inc.
In my previous life as a journalist, I worked as a reporter and editor at news organizations around the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles regions, including The Oakland Tribune and The Contra Costa Times. I founded the Central Coast Press Club to provide media support and continuing education for television and print journalists and public relations professionals in the Monterey County/Santa Cruz County region.
I serve on the Board of Directors of a video media startup, and am highly involved in public education initiatives on the district level.
