Biography of Marissa Mayer 
Marissa Ann Mayer (; born 1975) is the current president and CEO of Yahoo!, a position she has held since July 2012. Previously, she was a long-time executive and key spokesperson for Google.

Early life and education
Mayer was born in Wausau, Wisconsin, the daughter of Margaret Mayer, an art teacher of Finnish descent, and Michael Mayer, an environmental engineer who worked for water companies. Her grandfather, Clem Mayer, had polio when he was 7 and served as mayor of Jackson, Wisconsin for 32 years. As a child, Mayer was "painfully shy" and was a Brownie. During middle school and high school, she took piano and ballet lessons, the latter which taught her "criticism and discipline, poise and confidence." She took part in extracurricular activities, becoming president of her high school's Spanish club, treasurer of Key Club, captain of the debate team, and captain of the pom-pom squad. After graduating from high school in 1993, Mayer took pre-med classes at Stanford University. During her junior year, she taught a class in symbolic systems, with Eric S. Roberts as her supervisor. The class was so well received by students that Roberts asked Mayer to teach another class over the summer. For both degrees, her specialization was in artificial intelligence. For her undergraduate thesis, she built travel-recommendation software that advised users in natural-sounding human language.

Mayer interned at SRI International in Menlo Park, California, and Ubilab, UBS's research lab based in Zurich, Switzerland. She holds several patents in artificial intelligence and interface design.

Career

Mayer received 14 job offers, She was soon promoted to product manager and later became Director of Consumer Web products. She oversaw the layout of Google's well-known, unadorned search homepage Mayer held key roles in Google Search, Google Images, Google News, Google Maps, Google Books, Google Product Search, Google Toolbar, iGoogle, and Gmail.

In 2002, Mayer started the Associate Product Manager (APM) program, a Google mentorship program aimed to recruit new talents and cultivate and train them for leadership roles within the company. Each year, Mayer selected a number of junior employees for the two-year program, which would see them take on a number of extracurricular assignments and intensive evening classes.
