This is my first Elpha post and I'm so excited to be here! My name is Jessi Shuraleff and my background is in sales & marketing leadership, coming from Google where I was for 13+ years. I am a passionate, people first leader and also launched my podcast, This Is My Truth, in March 2020 where my personal mission is to create community & connection through storytelling.
I quit my job at Google in Jan. 2021 after realizing I was in desperate need of a break and wanted to focus on myself & my family first & foremost. During this time "off" from corpoate America, I've realized how much I miss and love making an impact and while it would be easier to transition back to a big tech company, that's not what drives me. I'm looking to make the transition from corporate to start-up - specifically within FemTech or a DE&I related company. As a working mom in corporate America dealing with infertility & seeing inequalitieis first-hand, I'd love to be part of the change to make life easier for those experiencing infertility or workplace inequalities.
My most recent role at Google was leading a sales team of 12+ AEs & AMs on our display, video & programmatic ads business. I am a seasoned sales & marketing leader with a proven reputation for building strong internal, external & cross-functional relationships across global businesses. I'm a proven strategic thinker with the ability to develop, implement & executive efective marketing, sales & go-to-market strategies including building, tracking and exceeding KPIs/goals. I'm an ambitious, people-first leader with an entrepreneurial attidude and exceptional client relationship management skills.
I am actively looking for a career opportunity in FemTech or DE&I space. I would love to connect to peers within these industries to discuss their career journey, especially if they've transitioned from coporate into start up world. If you can make a connection with me or refer me to someone within the industry, I'd be so grateful for your time. Feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn here as well.
If I can support you an in any way (I'm happy to be a sounding board for business or sales strategies, challenges, etc.), please let me know!
