About me

I began working with the Wikimedia Foundation in April 2017, moving to full-time the following September. My work focuses on long-term sustainability and support for the free and open knowledge movement, something I care deeply about. Prior to joining Wikimedia, I oversaw the Mozilla Foundation's network of community programs, a $10 million portfolio crossing science, education, Internet of Things, advocacy, and gender-based programming. I've also worked to build programs such as the Mozilla Science Lab, Digital Science, early Open Access and Open Data work with Creative Commons, and Datakind UK. More on my LinkedIn page.

I currently reside in Brooklyn, NY with my husband and our pup, Zelda.

My work

I lead the Foundation's Endowment effort as part of the Advancement team.
