About

I'm a results-driven (data + experience + gut) operations leader with experience at high-growth B2C and B2B startups. I love developing processes and managing operations, planning and executing go-to-market strategies, creating and leading cross-channel marketing campaigns, and recruiting talented folks. I'm passionate about building - and being part of - great teams. I'm scrappy and strategic (because I have to be and because I wouldn't love my job if I couldn't be both). Oh, and I love dogs. Strengths: • Business Operations (I'm often wearing multiple hats and have spun up business units) • Full Cycle Recruiting [Acquisition | Activation | Retention] • Investor Relations • Legal [Drafting contracts | Facilitating contracts with in-house counsel] • Budget planning & forecasting • Community building • People leadership and talent cultivation
