It must be something in the water... Doris credits growing up in Silicon Valley for her lifelong interest in entrepreneurship.
Prior to business school, Doris spearheaded the global non-profit organization Ashoka's search and evaluation efforts for high-impact social entrepreneurs in Mexico and Central America. After receiving her MBA in Entrepreneurial Management from Wharton, Doris is now building her own business at the intersection of real estate and hospitality: she has partnered with an investor to open a New York-themed food hall (a collection of mini-restaurants under one roof) in Manhattan.
Before becoming an entrepreneur, Doris worked in various corporate functions at Godiva Chocolatier, including marketing, innovation, finance, and strategy. She also holds a bachelor's degree in political science from Harvard and a master's degree in Latin American economics from Oxford.
Outside of work, Doris recently completed her bareboat certification for sailing, which allows her to charter sailboats without a skipper; she can't wait to explore all the new travel horizons that sailing opens up! She also plays tennis and volleyball, which both play important roles in working off all the calories she consumes while diligently eating her way through New York City's incredible restaurant scene.
