I'm a venture capitalist, corporate director, Stanford lecturer, recovering entrepreneur and Mom. I co-founded software company T/Maker and served as its CEO for over a dozen years until its acquisition by Deluxe Corporation. After a year as VP of Worldwide Developer Relations at Apple, I became a venture capitalist, and am now the Operating Partner at Silicon Valley-based venture firm DFJ. I am also currently a corporate director for DMGT (LSE:DMGT), ShareThis, ICIX, Intematix and Technorati. Every winter quarter, I teach the class “Spirit of Entrepreneurship” in the engineering department at Stanford University (where I also earned my undergrad and MBA degrees.) I'm a mom to two great kids and one needy rescue dog. I'm grateful to be part of the crazy Silicon Valley ecosystem and my motto is "Life is Good (or if it isn't, then change things until it is.)" Thanks for stopping by!
