Key Accomplishments

Prior to starting Viblio, I served as Corporate Vice President, Business Development at Cadence Design Systems, a public global software company. At Cadence, I led all mergers and acquisitions, strategic technology transactions and venture investments, delivering tens of millions of dollars in incremental revenue to Cadence through strategic acquisitions and partnerships. I helped articulate and implement the company’s mission through a targeted acquisition and partnership strategy, enabling Cadence to expand into adjacent growing markets.
I joined Cadence from Coverity, where I sat on the executive team and had oversight and management responsibility for worldwide legal and regulatory matters. I also initiated new growth programs and managing the company’s open source strategy and strategic planning process.
In 2004, I co-founded a professional women’s network that is now called Leading Women in Technology. Today, LWT serves hundreds of professional women in the Bay Area of California through unique and inspiring programs that help them accelerate the development of critical skills essential to professional success.
