As a professional woman, Christy Jones is keenly aware of the increased opportunities available to today's women, and the conflict these opportunities can create with the reality of the female biological clock. Christy set out to tackle this conflict by developing medical options to extend a woman's fertility and make fertility preservation a viable option. Out of this research, she founded Extend Fertility in 2003 to bring to market a revolutionary science and service that can effectively prolong a woman's fertile life. Christy is a seasoned entrepreneur with a successful track record of bringing new technologies to market. From 1996 through 2001, Christy served as President of pcOrder, successfully leading the company from start-up to a NASDAQ-listed public corporation. Prior to founding pcOrder, Christy served in numerous management roles at Trilogy Software, the company she co-founded as a Stanford University student in 1989. In 1999, she was honored as Ernst & Young's "Entrepreneur of the Year" in the Young Entrepreneur catagory. Forbe's magazine has featured Christy on three covers, most recently for her role in transforming the computer industry. She was also named one of the "Top 20 Leaders Under 30" by Working Woman. She currently serves on the Board of Fertile Hope, a national non-profit providing reproductive information, support and hope to cancer patients whose medical treatments present the risk of infertility. Christy received a BA in Economics from Stanford in 1991 and an MBA from Harvard in 2004. She and her husband and daughter live in Seattle, WA.
