Tell us about yourself/your team.
I'm on a mission to make a positive difference in the world. My career is dedicated to shaping public policies and perceptions that help address some of our most pressing global challenges (such as food security). I have spent my career working on ag and food policy issues in various organizations in the USA and Europe. I have a passion for sparking disruptive innovation by using powerful social media tools to inspire collaboration and game-changing action. I hold an MPA with a concentration in Science and Technology Policy from Columbia University in New York City and a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from American University in Washington, DC.
What makes you an intrapreneur? What are the skills, capabilities, and personality traits that make you an intrapreneur?
I thrive in an environment where I can bring new ideas forward, create dialogue and challenge conventional thinking. I create edge by challenging my company to adopt new initiatives and approaches, even if it causes friction at first. I push through resistance and traditional heirarchies to build a culture of innovation that supports creativity and risk-taking. I collaborate across organizational boundaries to leverage diversity, maximize impact, and produce high-impact results. Although I enjoy being a changemaker, I work best in teams and I am strongly motivated to lead through inspiration and sharing, I am a curious learner and visionary thinker, with a strong belief in the power mass collaboration and openness/ transparency to change the world.
