Having been one of the few women in the video games industry to lead large scale tech initiatives, Nanea is very committed in her support of helping women into tech leadership roles. She speaks frequently on why girls should play video games as a path to getting more females to work in STEM. She believes her love of video games together with a lifelong meditation practice has changed the course of her life.
As an avid meditator who has learned the power of “getting what you give,” Nanea is very active in her late husband’s non-profit Bodhicitta, Inc. that focuses on generating small acts of kindness including building an orphanage in Vietnam and 2 schools in Tibet. After losing her sister to an opioid overdose, Nanea is also very dedicated to working with women in recovery through her support of several Los Angeles recovery homes for women.
