I help organizations discover the magic that exists at the intersection of relationships and systems. Currently I’m the director of community development for Techstars, the worldwide network that helps entrepreneurs succeed. 

With more than 15 years' experience in designing cross-sector programs, strategic partnerships, network development, mentorship networks, and operations, I use the power of relationships paired with operational systems to drive an organization's mission forward. I dig working with entrepreneurial and innovative organizations.
