While my personal interest in biology started at a young age, I started out on a very different path. With a degree in business and IT, I worked in a wide variety of software product development and management positions at Hewlett-Packard and Oracle as well as at a small Internet start-up. Eventually I decided to switch gears and turn my interest in the natural world into a career. During the transition period, I brought my corporate leadership experience to serve as a board member and then board president of the non-profit San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory.
