The project I’m currently on is really quite exciting. I’ve helped one of our international not-for-profit clients to write a white paper about digital identity, its importance and what qualities a digital identity should have. The next phase of this project is to really drill down into the qualities we outlined and set up a framework that makes these qualities measurable, and to help digital identity system owners understand how their digital identity stacks up. I’ve loved being a part of such strategic, broad, impactful work. I do a lot of research, and I learn from the best and brightest in the industry.
As a “plus one”, I’m also involved in some very exciting initiatives in the blockchain identity space—exploring the use cases for blockchain technology in digital identity. I find blockchain technology not only technically interesting, but also conceptually interesting, as it can be, and is, a disruptive technology that can have huge impact. Seeing that impact play out on a global level and helping to give identity to those who don’t have one is very rewarding.
Outside of the office, my husband and I have a dog (a mini-Berne-Doodle, or a Bernese mountain dog-mini poodle mix), and I love to spoil him and play with him. I also love to cook—this week I learned to make homemade butternut squash ravioli. As the famed Napa Valley region is only a short drive away, we also love to go up there on weekends to explore new wineries or just enjoy the scenery.
