Barbara is a co-founder at Ponga where she manages customer and product experiences. She grew up largely overseas, before her family settled in Honolulu. She came to the Bay Area to study at Stanford in the late ‘70s. By the ‘80s, her nerdier tendencies lured her into a career in technology startups.
The extraordinary collection of family photos she’d collected as the youngest cousin triggered an interest in family history, stories, and photographs. That interest, the discovery of common interest among her fellow co-founders led to the founding of Ponga. Barbara is an avid networker and public speaker.
