Marquesa is Co-Founder and Managing Director of P2Health and was previously at the Kapor Center for Social Impact and Kapor Capital, working on improving diversity and inclusion in tech through entrepreneurship. Marquesa’s introduction into tech began after graduate school while working with a global health organization in the Middle East to leverage technology in the refugee crisis—a milestone experience solidified her dedication to digital health for social impact.

She is an active member of the tech community, especially within groups for women and underrepresented persons, and in 2012, co-founded Movement50, a new leaders group promoting diversity and social good in Oakland and San Francisco.
