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 Data Science talent acquisition (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 + effectiveness, talent management, executive coaching - all through a lens of equity, inclusion, and diversity. As a 20% project, I founded Google's first LatinX+ mentorship program: La Conexión.
Before COVID-19, I embraced my newfound love for street fairs and lazy Sundays in the park. You could find me at the symphony, at a museum, or catching cocktail hour. In our social distancing world, you'll find me at virtual wine and cheese tastings, partaking in cardio, watching horror movies, missing the thunder and lightning from Texas storms, watching late late night TV, or playing the piano. I am also a Guinness World Record holder.
