Hello, I’m Annie. I was born in Michigan and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. My home is a lively one with every day being an adventure with a 8 year old and 16 month old, 6 year old shelter pup that thinks he’s human, 3 fish named Peter, and a snail (no name as far as we know).

Having worked in tech over 20 years, I have held a variety of roles building, leading, and growing operations, sales, customer success, customer experience, marketing, operations, strategy, and people. I am a three time C-level executive at growth and scale domestic & global SaaS software companies and a published author and industry speaker. More detail here.

These days, I wear a few hats.

As Chief Operating Officer at Interact, I am responsible for the company’s operational and financial strategy and get to work with an amazingly nimble and awesome team to bring a new layer of humanness and understanding to data and online relationship management.

As a mentor, advisor, and coach, I help mid-senior level leaders and entrepreneurs successfully shift from operational to strategic leadership, become intentional about their personal brand and make major career & personal transitions, and better understand their customers, employees, and themselves.

As part-time partner at The House Fund, an early stage venture fund investing in the UC Berkeley ecosystem of entrepreneurs, I support deal flow and advise our portfolio.

As an angel investor, I write 2-3 checks a year in founders and ideas that I believe in. To-date, my portfolio includes companies focused on SaaS, SMB, AI, alternative foods, and eCommerce. I am proud to have had the honor of investing in 80% women or minority founded companies.

I am a passionate advocate for education and progressive policies driving equity and personalized learning experiences within our local public education system. I sit on two non-profit boards focusing on improving public education (San Mateo-Foster City Education Foundation) and closing the representation gap in software development (Techtonica). As a community partner, I am acting as a Board of Supervisors appointed committee member to the Housing and Community Development, Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee, and Emergency Medical Care Committees of San Mateo County, at the heart of the San Francisco-Silicon Valley peninsula.
