Blockchain Tech with Purpose

CMO Blog

I recently embarked on an exciting new journey as Co-Founder & Chief Marketing Officer at Blockchain Laboratories.  Driven by a desire to make a difference, I left behind a fulfilling career in the enterprise telecoms/contact center industry to follow a new calling. While the transition to a startup in a different industry may seem daunting, my unwavering commitment to making a positive impact on the world has driven me forward.

My path intersected with Boone Bergsma, the Founder & CEO of Blockchain Laboratories last year as I explored a career pivot towards technology that addresses environmental and societal challenges. Like today’s modern day business connections, it started with a discussion about my ambitions at a networking event in Palo Alto, California that led to a LinkedIn introduction to connect with Boone.  Inspired by a 6-month course called the Sophia Circle, led by renowned author and philanthropist Lynne Twist, I made a personal commitment earlier in 2023 to leverage my skills in solving climate change through nature-based solutions. Little did I know how this commitment would unfold and expand.

Through the course, I also had the privilege of meeting Bill Twist, CEO and Co-founder of the Pachamama Alliance, who introduced me to an Ecolodge in Ecuador that was looking to utilize Blockchain Technology in the Amazon Rainforest. This research project perfectly aligned with my dual aspirations: to contribute meaningfully through philanthropy and to expand my knowledge of the technology.   

In my journey of networking and attending social events to help learn and find answers, I connected with Boone, who validated the potential of this opportunity and highlighted the benefits of blockchain’s transparency and permanence for the Ecolodge. I was impressed by the technology stack Boone had been developing over the last few years and his vision to create innovative decentralized technologies and applications (dApps) that empower businesses and communities to drive positive change.

In November 2023, I joined the board of Blockchain Laboratories and officially became a Co-Founder on January 2nd, 2024.

And so the journey begins.
