In elementary school, I was the go-to origami note-passer and playground match-maker. I got a kick out of helping make people make connections that made their day.
Now I do the same thing, but the notes I pass are digital and matchmaking happens when I develop world-class talent for Google.
In 2014, my dog (Lexi) and I moved from Dallas to San Francisco where I joined Google to build and lead the Data Science Recruiting function (including several others). My work evolved into a strategic operations role for Google products. After we have hired the best, how do we keep them and empower them to have a healthy disregard for the impossible? My focus is now on organizational design and effectiveness, talent management, and executive coaching. As a 20% project, I founded Google's first LatinX+ mentorship program: La Conexión.
In my spare time, I’m either embracing my newfound love for street fairs and lazy Sundays in the park, or I'm having wine and cheese, relishing the smell and taste of coffee, partaking in cardio, watching horror movies, attending the symphony, missing the thunder and lightning from Texas storms, watching late late night TV, at a museum, catching happy hour, playing the piano, or waiting anxiously for Halloween. I am also a Guinness World Record holder.
