About

Hello! I'm Hayley.

I'm powered by passion and endless possibility. I am a data-driven technologist and inclusion advocate with an entrepreneurial drive aspiring to make an impact and pursue interesting work that matters.

I am the founder of Lady in Tech, an award-winning tech and lifestyle new media company for next-generation female tech leaders and entrepreneurs. I was named a "Top Tech Influencer" by IVY Magazine.

I write a column for Forbes that inspires, motivates and moves millennial women to enter the tech industry and build impactful products at scale to improve the world.

For my inclusion and diversity advocacy work, I was featured in BBC World Service, BBC 100 Women, OZY, Founded By, Women in Tech, and ABC 7 News. It is critical that we increase diversity in tech because of the preeminent role the industry plays in shaping the future of humanity. Technology innovation is a strategic imperative, and we must work toward creating a future where the people who imagine and build technology mirror the people and societies for whom they build it.

I moonlight as an organizer and community builder for TEDx San Francisco, a nonprofit devoted to ideas worth spreading, and Women in Product, a nonprofit dedicated to increasing diversity and inclusion in product management.

I was named a distinguished alumni from the University of Colorado at Boulder where I graduated early with honors. I also studied Technology and Innovation as well as International Management at Stanford University.

I am a Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef, sommelier, marathon runner, and certified yoga instructor based in sunny San Francisco, California.
