I am a work coach and strategist with more than a dozen years experience leading resilient, diverse, remote-first teams. My leadership style has been heralded as humane, deeply inclusive, and brave—I create the space for people to thrive, and the work follows. I spent a decade growing and leading multi-disciplinary teams, as CEO of Editorially and as VP of Product at Vox Media. In that time, I created the first diversity leadership group at Vox Media and built and iterated on practices in support of inclusion and justice. As co-founder and former editor-in-chief of A Book Apart, I changed the way designers, developers, researchers and others work together—including with the publication of groundbreaking books about responsive web design and content strategy.

Begun in 2008, A Working Library is a project to explore the intersections of reading, technology, and the nature of work. The phrase “working library” usually refers to a collection of texts on a given subject; here, the collection is open-ended and the subjects are many and varied. As a generalist, I delight in making connections across disciplines, and in bringing together different ways of seeing and thinking. With adrienne maree brown, I read visionary science fiction and fantasy as a way of practicing the future. With Le Guin and Borges, I read all prose as fiction. And with Ursula Franklin, I believe technology is a practice—and that it is through practice that we learn and change.

I live in Philadelphia with my husband—the filmmaker Keith Ehrlich—and a pit bull named Furiosa.
