Isabella has been interested in math, technology, and business since she first served as an app tester for a foreign language app in 3rd grade. In 6th grade, she was introduced to Technovation, a coding and entrepreneurship organization, and she participated in this program during all three years of middle school. She was accepted into the Kode with Klossy program in San Francisco for the Summer of 2018 and was an integral part of the team that created 1NCUB8 (incub8.herokuapp.com), a startup accelerator app for teens, which went on to win the 2018 Congressional App Challenge for CA District 15. She also worked for two summers as a summer associate for Close Concerns conducting research and analysis on diabetes and obesity-related issues and performing click-through analysis on their marketing initiatives. She is fluent in French, speaks conversational Spanish, and has earned several academic awards including the President’s Award for Academic Achievement and the North Coast Section Athletics Award for Academic Excellence.

She is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Australia. Outside of work and her volunteer activities, she enjoys playing sports and has a black belt in taekwondo. She is on the varsity cross country and track teams at her high school, running the 400m, and 4x4. Other interests include reading, traveling, and cooking.
