Libo Cao Meyers is an accomplished engineering executive who has been with Apple since 2011. With a passion for enriching people’s lives, she serves on multiple boards and is dedicated to creating innovative products and meaningful services that help individuals reach their full potential.
Despite being diagnosed with polio as an infant while growing up in rural parts of Northern China, Libo Cao Meyers refused to let her disability hold her back. At the age of twenty-four, she immigrated alone to the United States and achieved an incredible feat by completing her MS and Ph.D. simultaneously in two different engineering fields from Ohio University within four years. Her tech profession began in Silicon Valley in early 2004, where she has thrived in the culture of innovation ever since.
Libo’s determination to push through limitations extends beyond her academic and professional life. She completed a one-hundred-mile bike ride, battling wind for eleven and a half hours, and is pursuing a black belt in Karate to lead her young sons by example. Additionally, she is learning to use an exoskeleton to play various sports with polio, demonstrating her commitment to defying physical limitations.
Of all Libo has accomplished, she is most proud of her family, including the deep roots of the Cao family from China with 3,000 years of history. Libo lives in California with her husband and their two sons.
