Over the past decade I’ve applied my entrepreneurial spirit and business acumen as a founder, private investor, and currently as a business strategist on a contract basis.

From starting a successful commercial real estate company landing me in the Forbes Companies to Watch list to funding successful startups as an angel investor, my passion is discovering innovative solutions and overlooked opportunities. I practice agility, strategic thinking, and iterative learning in my work and everyday life.

As a strategist, I am surgical with analyzing qualitative business problems, generating multiple solutions and helping leaders execute on them to bring organizations to the next level. I guide leaders in refining their vision and aligning their priorities to achieve greater results and build stronger teams.

In addition to my uncanny ability to assess growth opportunities, I have a track record of success in building bottom-line profitability. I love partnering with companies that have a clear and authentic vision, good problem-solution fit, and a defensible competitive advantage to drive business breakthroughs and growth.

I am dedicated to applying business and technology to advance 21st century social values, with win-win outcomes for business and for our world. I am an active participant in a White House pledge to invest in female, minority, and LGBT founders, and volunteer as an advisor to impact funds investing in mission-driven companies and B Corps.

Dedicated to financial independence and leadership advancement for women, I am on the board of Parents Together, a tech-enabled foundation helping parents thrive. I am also a member of 37 Angels, an all-female angel investor network based in New York City.
