SaraJoy Pond has worked as a worked as a user experience designer, creative director, data scientist, usability specialist, curriculum consultant, professional evaluator, and university instructor. She has lived and worked on 4 continents, built one of the first impact-focused crowdfunding platforms, and is completing a dissertation on novice/expert differences in problem anticipation among social entrepreneurs.

SaraJoy is intensely fond of her road bike, symphonic cello, and stracciatella gelato and detests bad line-breaks, bean soup and writing her own bio.
