With deep understanding of technology, Internet policy, and the politics of the Internet, she has been a pioneer and leader in the Internet community since 1988 through direct employment and volunteer/honorary positions.

As executive director, she took the initial NSF funding and successfully commercialized the network for both the academic and private sector users, growing from 25 sites to hundreds of sites within California.
