Why Venture Capital?
I love working with early stage companies because there is so much creation happening. No one has the answers yet, so it’s a matter of starting smart, then building on the foundation. I also really value working with friendly, intelligent people and our companies are full of them.
I spent over 20 years as a marketing and product executive building, branding, and launching market-defining software at Microsoft, Netscape/AOL, and Loudcloud. I’ve also been on the Advisory Boards of 10+ B2C & B2B startups. I’m honored to also be the Product Marketing Partner at Silicon Valley Product Group (SVPG) and am a Lecturer on marketing at the UC Berkeley graduate school of engineering.

Outside of Work
My passions are biking, running, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, and triathlons and recently started trying biathlons and wake surfing. All else aside, being a Mom to two amazing daughters is job #1. Ask me about Star Wars IV, V, VI, VII, Tahoe, or how I met my husband, Chris Jones.
