As Corporate Vice President at Microsoft, my mission is to help our US partners achieve more. I am grateful to be leading a team who empowers our partners to make more possible and transforms our US partner ecosystem into a strategic asset to drive digital transformation.
My team is responsible for Microsoft’s US Partner business, including strategy, management, and overall partner ecosystem health. The team works with US partners to develop strong practices aligned to Microsoft’s workload and industry priorities and delivers these solutions to customers to help them maximize business benefits from their investment in Microsoft technology. My organization is comprised of Partner Management, Channel Sales, Go-To-Market (GTM), and partner-facing Technical Specialists and Architects.
As a global business leader with more than 20 years of experience at Microsoft, I most recently served as the Vice President of the US Small, Medium and Corporate Segments. I have also led sales, marketing and services teams in the US, India, and Latin America. In each market, I strived to develop a strong track record of building people and strategic partnerships to drive growth and customer outcomes. I am passionate about leading with purpose and creating a diverse and inclusive environment where our team, partners, and customers feel valued, seen and heard.

Go Rams, Lakers, and Angels!
