My public bio
Joining Google in 2005, Maile works closely with Google’s Search and Webmaster Tools teams as a Developer Programs Tech Lead. Her goal is to support and advocate on behalf of all site owners. A few of Maile’s projects include rel=”canonical” (co-author of the IETF RFC), and rel=”next” and rel=”prev” for paginated content. Maile often speaks publicly about SEO, including keynotes at SES Chicago and SMX Munich. She also co-authored Building Web Apps for Google TV (O’Reilly).
Prior to Google, Maile was a systems integrator specializing in content management systems for organizations including AT&T and the Office of the Secretary of Defense. She earned a B.A. in Cognitive Science with a Computer Science emphasis from the University of California at Berkeley.
This blog’s addendum
In truth, Maile studied computer science as a backup plan to her dream to be a sportscaster. While she held an engineering internship in college, Maile also interned for the sports departments at KPIX and KGO television stations in San Francisco. After graduation, however, instead of pursuing her dream in the broadcast booth, she sold out to The Man. Now everyday she works on interesting projects with people she either loves, or honestly, really, really likes! Her life often feels too good to be true.
