Anne Espiritu is the Chief International Officer at the Contentment Foundation. In her role, she oversees the strategic operations behind key international markets, including Bhutan, as well as the organization’s marketing and communications efforts.
Anne holds a 13 year track record in consumer technology, corporate communications, and crisis management. Before she joined the Contentment Foundation, Anne held leadership roles at Yahoo and Oscar Health, where she helped lead both companies through tumultuous and critical moments in their histories. She began her career in communications at Google, where she served the company’s billions of users for nearly seven years.
In the last decade, Anne has also humbly worked alongside some of the most high-profile CEOs and technology leaders in the world today, most notably, former Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer, whom she had the privilege to learn from for nearly a decade.
While the bulk of Anne's experience to date is centered around consumer technology, her true passion lies in work that involves social impact, specifically helping expand the consciousness of humanity. Outside of her full time work for the Foundation, she is working to become an executive coach to support women and leaders to courageously live out their best and most authentic selves.
Early in her career, Anne spent two years in the Philippines and worked on socio-economic development projects funded by the International Finance Group, a private sector of the World Bank Group.
Anne was also recognized as one of PRWeek’s Innovation 50 rising stars in tech PR in 2012. She graduated from University of California Berkeley with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Economy.
