I spent the last year 7 years growing a remote-first global SaaS company from 15 employees to 350 employees in 30+ countries, where I played various roles of starting up our US entity (operations, legal, finance, HR and Talent Acquisition) to sales, customer success and partnerships globally. In some ways, I was a CoS this entire time, so I'm excited to finally find this official role and community to continue on my path of growth. In my previous life, I was a B2B Marketer and also failed at growing a nonprofit fundraising tech company. I am also very involved in the local community with economic revitalization efforts, as well as by serving on the board of a Children's Museum. And last but not least, I'm the mom of 2 amazing children under 5 years old, I have traveled to over 30+ countries, was an avid poker player, and am proud to be self-made and the daughter of Vietnamese refugees.

Pro Tip

Be the person known as always getting shit done no matter what, and in a respectful and collaborative manner. It can pay to be scrappy and don't be afraid to ask for forgiveness later. Also, brush up on your pivot table and data analysis skills!

Gives

- Making introductions to people I know - Open to collaboration opportunities - And, feel free to pick my brain on anything. Here are two big topics that are fun to talk about: I've experienced the challenges of an M&A of two companies of equal sizes, but with drastically different cultures and operations. As part of this, I've also gone through a rebrand, new product launch and entire new tool stack. I've also grown a remote-first company from 15 to 350 people in 30+ countries the past 7 years. Accelerated growth and productivity in a remote environment is possible.

Asks

There never seems to be a dull moment as a CoS, so I look forward to knowledge-sharing for this fast-paced role and even giving/receiving emotional support for what can be a lonely role.
