Auriga is a native Californian where she commenced her career with successful start-up Lynda.com as one of their first employees. Lynda.com was bought by LinkedIn in 2015 for US$1.5 billion and is now called LinkedIn Learning within the Microsoft Group. After 12 years at Lynda.com in business development, content team management and product management roles, Auriga moved to New Zealand.
After a product management role with CRS Software, for the past 18 months she has led a project team at Transpower as Robotics Services Project Manager, piloting a new ‘robot as a service’ venture - a remotely driven visual and audible capture robot to respond to faults in remote substation environments, one of the top innovation projects in the energy sector and in collaboration with Massey University’s ioSYS technology lab.
In her spare time Auriga established the Ventana Creative Collective in Martinborough which is now a thriving gallery, events and workshops venture for artists.
Auriga was an All-American soccer and lacrosse player in her youth, but now spends most of her free time trying to keep up with her downhill mountain biking, medal winning daughters, and one day Coast to Coast running husband.
