Eileen has worked in the tech industry for 20 years and her current position is as a Director at Symantec Corporation. In her role as a Director she oversees the Symantec security appliance business, from hardware product development through global supply chain.
Symantec is a host company for the U.S. State Department TechWomen Program where Eileen has volunteered as a Professional Mentor since 2012. In her role as a Professional Mentor she hosts women from the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia and facilitates technical and leadership training. She provides access to her professional network so the mentees have exponential opportunities to learn and expand their own networks.
Eileen travels to the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia in participation with the U.S. State Department delegation trips and through her own grassroots efforts to reach women in countries where the State Department has not officially organized trips. Since 2013 her trips include Rwanda, Morocco, South Africa, Tunisia, Jordan, Gaza, Palestine, Zimbabwe and Kazakhstan.
In her passion to help advance the status of women and girls she has developed speaking topics, panels and workshops. She is tireless at learning, creating content and sharing information with others to help them succeed. In the USA there are hundreds of presenters and trainers available to help women engage in technical careers and start their own businesses, however in other regions of the world there are very few resources and role models for women. To this end she volunteers on average 200 hours per year.

Eileen visited Palestine in 2016 and gave lectures in many institutes who were proudly receiving her. During the lectures Eileen paid great attention to the details and was fully prepared even though she had a very busy schedule, in a foreign country with modest equipment.
