GET TO KNOW
Over the last decade, I have dedicated my career to helping organizations build sales teams, increase revenue, and scale globally. I’ve held executive-level positions at workforce development, gender equity and education-focused organizations including EdSurge, an education technology information resource and community service K-12 and higher education. As the first sales hire, I built a five-woman sales and customer success team, launched sales products, and increased revenues by 3500%. I am also the author of Social Media for Salespeople as well as a Founding Limited Partner of How Women Invest, a venture fund seeking to realize untapped economic potential by focusing on the intersection of female founders and female investors.
More about Alice
I like getting to know the real person behind the work so, in case you do too, here's a bit more about me:
I was an Air Force brat growing up, living overseas much of my young life. I was born in Germany to a German mother and American father in a German hospital. I used to say that I'm about as German as you can be without the passport but I was finally able to convince the German government to give me citizenship. I now live in Alameda, California which is an island off of Oakland. I have two teenaged daughters who keep me on my toes, two dogs and a husband (who also keeps me on my toes). I'm quite active and cycle through activities and interests. Over the last 5 years, I've been into whaleboat rowing, ultimate frisbee, tennis, watercolors, and golf but the two things that have been a constant in my life are cycling and reading. More on that below. I also give back where I can, and currently sit on the board of Lincoln Families, an Oakland-based non-profit whose mission is to disrupt the cycle of poverty and trauma, empowering children and families to build strong futures (please donate).
And don't get me started about bikes
I was a late bloomer to riding without training wheels, not figuring this out until 4th grade but once I got the hang of riding my purple bike with the sparkly red banana seat, I never looked back. I’ve been a consistent bike commuter from my college days, through my career in San Francisco and now I ride road bikes long distances while raising money for non-profits. Some highlights:
Biked 325 miles across Zambia raising money for women’s economic empowerment and HIV prevention.
Top 5 fundraiser for Cycle of Hope, Habitat for Humanity fundraising bike ride.
Member of most successful Team in Training team raising over $600,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Foundation while riding 72 miles around Lake Tahoe (in the rain!).
