Traunza is a graduate of Stanford University and emphasizes a customer and results-focused approach. Her team spearheads Ginger.io’s “life matters” principle, the company’s focus on building a high-growth technology company but in a mentally healthy way. Initiatives include empowering Product and Engineering teams to plan work such that emergencies are minimized, and stress-inducing arbitrary deadlines are avoided. "Life matters" also means employees are supported when they need to leave at 3:00pm for a kid's baseball game, or just need to take a mental health day. Start-ups are said to be inherently unhealthy places, but at Ginger.io, Traunza’s team ensures that maintaining an emotionally healthy workplace is a company priority.
