Alum Connection: Nancy Xiao, President at Mason

There are many misconceptions about the tech industry, one being that you need a specialized education in order to find a meaningful career in tech. Join the LSA Opportunity Hub on Friday, March 12th for a special Alum Connections session with Nancy Xiao (English ‘14). Nancy will unravel myths and misconceptions about the industry, share her journey from LSA to President of hardware and software company Mason, and talk about her experiences working at Duo Security and Facebook. In addition, Nancy will share the myriad of roles that exist in the tech industry and tips on how to set yourself apart during interviews.

She was previously at Facebook for 5+ years working in product management and product marketing within the Oculus and Parse teams. She received a dual degree from LSA and Ross studying English with a minor in Chinese and Business. Her experience spans virtual reality, gaming, advertising, mobile technology, and hardware. She loves a good read from Literati paired with a Zingerman's brownie!
