Facebook COO and Lean In author Sheryl Sandberg is joining the board of SurveyMonkey, where her late husband, Dave Goldberg, served as CEO.

Goldberg died in May at age 47 in an accident while on vacation. In his years as chief executive of SurveyMonkey, he helped grow the company to a $2 billion-valuation, the New York Times reports. Sandberg said in a statement that she planned to “help to realize Dave’s vision of building a lasting company that will impact the way we all do business,” noting that the polling platform is meant to help people “make better decisions.”

SurveyMonkey is a private company, but expected to go public sometime soon—though a spokesperson told the Times there were no specific plans currently in the works.
