What are your hopes for the next generation of women in tech?
I hope some obstacles are cleared. I hope what took me 10 years to build, takes them 5. I hope the next generation has access and influence to create meaningful tech that confronts the challenges of our time. I hope we're past satisfying the whims of capitalism and leave a better world than we found.
What’s the greatest piece of advice you’ve ever received?
To take risks early in my career and be confident in my ability to bounce back. Further, to know that I'm never building from scratch, I'm building from experience...always.
