Please describe your relevant analytical skills. Working at Google everything we do is analytical and driven by efficiency and scalability. I work side by side with engineers to develop models to achieve certain client objectives. Although I'm not the one building the model or writing the code, I provide clear direction, guide the process and ensure we meet deadlines.
Please describe your ability to be impartial. As a 5th generation Austinite (very proud!) I was raised in a conservative household. However, after graduating from UT, I moved to New York and expanded my career and education. This helped open my eyes to other perspectives, diverse backgrounds and other ways of viewing the world. Now after moving back to Austin I hold both the historic values of Texas with a broader view of the world. I consider myself neither Republican or Democrat, but rather have values from both sides.
Please describe your appreciation for the City of Austin's diverse demographics and geography. I feel strongly this is probably one of the most important decisions we can make as a City. I am welcome to new Austinites joining our great city every day.
Please provide your employment history. Google 2014- present L'Oreal 2007-2017 Deutch 2005-2007
Please provide any other information you wish to be considered during the selection of the most qualified applicants for the Commission. I have never participated in government (beyond being a voter!) and have a passion / drive to help shape the future. As a 36 year old mother of 3 young kids, and successful executive within technology, I now feel a duty to help leave a mark. I'm looking to dedicate more "spare time" to help shape our local government and policies.
