After graduation from San Jose State in 1997, I began my career as an inside sales representative at The Saratoga Group, a leading provider of computer-based training and web-based management software. After 2 1/2 years, I moved to an inside sales role at Legato Software focusing on backup, recovery, and archiving software. After EMC acquired Legato in 2003, I was promoted to a field sales role within EMC's Backup, Recovery, and Archive (BURA) division in 2005. I moved to CommVault Systems June of 2009 assisting Bay Area public sector, healthcare, and bio-technology organizations with backup, archive, deduplication, and e-discovery projects. I moved to VMware July 2019 to assist Northern CA higher education and healthcare customers with their digital transformations and cloud enablement strategies.
