DEMONSTRATED LEADERSHIP, PROGRESSIVE VALUES
Having worked across public, nonprofit and private sectors, I believe I have the experience needed to translate progressive values into reality.
As an early member of Google’s user policy team and a manager of Google’s international legal operations teams, I worked with stakeholders inside and outside of tech to address complex and timely policy issues. For instance, I spent a decade authoring and operationalizing policies to stop online child exploitation. I also led teams that responded to US and international government demands for user data that required balancing compliance with user privacy and protection.
Prior to tech, I worked for Congresswoman Barbara Lee on issues such as land use and immigration and worked for affordable housing and environmental nonprofits. More recently, I was Sr. Director of Engineering Strategy and Operations at Box, where I led the business operations and technical program management teams to deliver on the company’s long-term business strategy through technical initiatives.
Throughout my life, I’ve devoted myself to community service. I immigrated to the United States with my mom--a single parent of 3 children. Growing up, I remember thinking I wasn’t a kid you’d bet on. But, I was able to achieve my aspirations due to the support of teachers, educational programs and scholarships, for example. Because of this, I’ve dedicated my life to ensuring that all people have a fair opportunity to build the life they aspire to.
I’m currently a member of the Equity Task Force for the Los Altos School District, which aims to eradicate institutional bias that affects student achievement and eliminate disparities in educational outcomes. While at Box, I was executive sponsor for Women in Tech, an employee resource group to support women in technical fields. I also spent 4 years on the Board of a local chapter of the National Women’s Political Caucus as PAC Co-Chair, Vice Chair, and on the technology committee. I have also served on the Menlo Park Planning Commission. I’m currently on the Board for the Los Altos-Mountain View Council of PTAs.
I’m the mother of two young daughters, and seeing the world through their eyes has strengthened my resolve to make the world a just and fair place.
I hope my passion, skills and experience will serve this district and the California Democratic Party. I would be honored to earn your vote.
