I was fortunate enough to start my post undergraduate career in Silicon Valley, working for a small but mighty technology company. When the company dissolved it’s education division in 1998, I had the opportunity to join a handful of brilliant minds from Stanford to be part of a start up. We began in our CEO’s living room, headlined at MacWorld, and eventually sold the company. It was my first remote experience and one I will never forget. Working remotely allowed me to move back to Grass Valley, CA to be close to my parents and a community I loved. Coincidentally, it was both the place I grew up and where our CEO, CFO and COO wanted to retire.
