Maïa C. Carpenter (she/her)

I founded Carpenter Consulting Partners, Inc. in 2017 to focus on the working relationship between leaders and support roles including Executive Operations, Chiefs of Staff, Administrative Business Partners and Executive Assistants. I'm a certified (CPCC, PCC) executive and leadership coach with over 500 hours of professional coaching experience. With a diversity of coaching clients that range from journalists, CEOs of public companies, new people managers, Chiefs of Staff in tech, educators, artists and small business owners -- I am constantly in awe of human abilities and potential.

I recently joined Asana as the global Head of Administrative Operations. Before this, I led the global Executive Operations team at Block (Square). I've had a 20+ year career as an Executive Assistant and Chief of Staff in crypto, fintech, private equity, venture capital, tech, and biotech.

For 10 years I was a film and video artist and exhibited at The Whitney Museum of American Art, The British Film Institute, The Director's Guild of America and on PBS television amongst others. In 2012 I co-founded the educational nonprofit Canyon Cinema Foundation and have been a dedicated nonprofit Board Director for over 15 years in the SF Bay Area.

I'm originally from New York, am bicultural (French + American), a mother to an inspiring little human and spouse to another big 'kid'. I relish cooking and sharing meals, architecture, cats, gardening, and vintage motorcycle riding. I'm an advocate for for queer and underrepresented minority rights.
