The Palo Alto-ista?

    So happy for you and hope you like Stanford! and hope to see you at future conferences and possibly LIFE meetings. :)

When the rad team at Clever Girls Collective reached out about a chance to share good spring news, it was good incentive to pull this post out of draft and hit publish for y’all.

After a few years working in online publishing, I’ve left my full-time work in the City by the Bay to start studying in Stanford’s Learning, Design & Technology program this fall. After discovering how interested I am in the ways that people–and especially school-aged girls–learn online, I’m looking forward to working with engineers, designers, educators, and MBA types in Palo Alto (though I’m not yet sure what will happen to the name of this fair site when I go).

In the meantime, you (and Twitter) can find me trying to stay out of trouble thanks to:

  • Writing and video projects with entrepreneurial friends at Ecofabulous and Women 2.0;
  • Heading to Nairobi in July with the Africa Yoga Project, a group that trains yoga instructors to find… work in their local communities. I’ve loved teaching flow-based yoga in SF this year (hold tight for video of the Ignite talk that explains why). And I feel fortunate to be going to Kenya for seva (“service”) work that includes building a community center where new teachers can lead classes. If you’re in SF, there will be an Africa Yoga Project party at Otis on April 27 and donation-based classes to follow. Friends have been oh-so-generous so far and I’m hoping to bring $5K with me in July to continue the organization’s engaging work. Thanks for considering it!
  • Taking a few design and programming workshops so future communication is more visually arresting that what you see here.
