I am an AI Ethicist with a passion for social justice and technology.
Over the last 20 years, my corporate work required me to lead global projects in Diversity, Ethics, HR Strategy & Technology spanning more than 20 countries.
I am the founder of Lighthouse Career Consulting and www.aiEthicist.org, and have over fifteen years of senior level HR & Sales experience in Fortune 100 companies (Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Marriott Corporation).
In addition to my initiatives, I also work for a Nevada-based social enterprise (High Sierra Industries) focused on learning systems for individuals with intellectual disabilities. I am in charge of HIPAA Privacy & Security, as well as the overall information security for the organization and multi-discipline projects.
I am honored to serve on the board of directors for Northern Nevada International Center (University of Nevada-Reno), and management committee for Sierra Club Toiyabe Chapter.
I try to create an impact in the conversation around AI ethics and bias through lectures, speaking engagements, global collaborations and aiEthicist.org platform. I work towards increasing public knowledge of the impact of AI and automated decision making systems in our lives while advocating for oversight, transparency or accountability, and enhance the space
