I grew up in the Colorado Rockies and firmly believe any conversation is better on the top of a mountain. I’ve found my calling in inspiring companies and individuals to apply their unique gifts to solving social and ecological problems. I helped start the Values & Impact team at Etsy and ESG programming at Thomson Reuters. I founded Jiamini, a non-profit that provides educational support to vulnerable children in Tanzania, with three friends almost ten years ago. I started my career in news, working in photojournalism (desk side, not action side) and eventually heading up the media business for Reuters Australia/New Zealand. I have a BA in biology, which I had the good fortune to apply surveying reefs for the Micronesian government – a gig I hope to return to in retirement.
