View all staff


Scarlet builds and nurtures relationships with diverse clients at SU to address their unique needs and deliver bespoke and transformative enterprise solutions. She takes a deeply analytical and research-oriented approach to working with clients, and devises creative and comprehensive solutions.  With an eye to understanding key challenges and creative opportunities posed by exponential technologies, she brings together stakeholders from multinational corporations, startups, nonprofits, education, and government to prepare for an uncertain and abundant future.

Previously, Scarlet led corporate partnerships and US sales for a venture-funded edtech.  She began her professional journey analyzing financial statements and ratios as a value investor in the public equity markets.  Spurred by the innovative projects of entrepreneur and VC colleagues, she later invested in privately held companies active in the IoT, software, cleantech, and disruptive technologies spaces, where she enjoyed a more visceral engagement with company strategy and mission.  She spearheaded new initiatives in sales and operations–working in consulting, business development, B2B and B2C, and fundraising. At SU, she integrates her many passions by implementing education and innovation to achieve direct impact on business performance while making a difference on a global scale.

Scarlet completed her BA, MA, and PhD degrees at Harvard University.  She has lived and worked in the UK, Switzerland, and Russia, is multilingual, and remains intensely curious about different cultures and how they shape perspectives and choices.  She serves on the Nonprofits Boards Initiative of 100 Women in Finance and is deeply committed to transforming the status quo through entrepreneurship and radical strategic initiatives.  She feels privileged to work every day with inspiring and collaborative colleagues and clients from all over the world, united by a common mission of using technology to serve the greater good.
