I look forward to helping expand the tech presence at Wharton with interesting speakers, stronger recruiting resources, and everyday conversations about the latest happenings in tech!

Natalie Raps, president   After majoring in government and theatre (yes...theatre!) at Cornell, I spent a majority of my time before Wharton in politics - first on the Obama 2012 campaign and then on Capitol Hill until I went into crisis communications and strategy.

Super excited to work with the Tech Week team to create a super informative (and fun) week for my fellow Wharton students!

Elaine Liu, tech week (1Y)   I was born in Toronto, Canada but moved to the San Francisco Bay Area at a young age and call Palo Alto my home. After graduating from UCLA, I came back to San Francisco where I was working for PwC as a Forensic Consultant. I’ve always had a love for tech and got particularly fascinated with the semiconductor industry during my time at PwC. Cannot wait to help put together an awesome Tech Week this year!

Parker Reynolds, tech week (1y)   I grew up just south of Seattle and moved to the east coast for undergrad when I went to Colgate University and found my love for tech in my computer science Major. After Colgate I worked in technology consulting for Deloitte in NYC. In this role I worked with life science companies to implement technologies that allowed them to use their vast amounts of data more efficiently. I’m looking forward to bringing some awesome speakers to campus for techweek!

Dan Wexler, treks (1Y)   Born, raised, went to undergrad, and worked in Minneapolis so I've been hardened by 2 decades of freezing winters and disappointing sports teams. Before moving here, I did pricing and go-to-market strategy consulting at Accenture. I can't wait to explore the tech scenes on both coasts and help the Wharton community find a company they're excited to work for!
