Silicon Valley

I'm a passionate entrepreneur focused on helping people and businesses grow to their full potential. I'm cofounder and CEO of EmbraceHer Health, a mobile health company I started with my obstetrician. We provide women and families with reproductive health education solutions and online support from clinical experts for every stage of life. I live in Silicon Valley with my twins, startup CEO husband and three Savannah cats.

I've been involved in over a dozen technology companies and startups across mobile, online advertising, consumer Internet, cloud applications, and social media including Accenture, AT&T Wireless, LinkExchange, Microsoft, mobileID, SEVEN Networks, Immunet (acquired by Sourcefire), SafetyWeb/myID (acquired by Experian), RingCentral and Startup Grind. I founded a small business providing wellness services and products to women and mothers throughout the Bay Area. I led marketing and communications for DayOne Center, a leading provider of services and products to new and expectant parents. Prior to co-founder EmbraceHer, I led marketing and partnerships for StartupGrind, a global startup community that aims to educate, connect and inspire entrepreneurs around the world.

Prior to having my twins, I was founder and CEO of A New Being, a health and wellness practice with three locations providing support to hundreds of pregnant and new mothers as a birth doula, prenatal Pilates and fitness expert, and perinatal massage therapist. I also led marketing for DayOne Center, a parent-baby community and health education resource center in the Bay Area.
