When I was employee #2 (marketer #1) at Bloomfire, I helped grow sales while completing my undergraduate degree in communications at Calvin College. Bloomfire was acquired in month 20 and is now scaling with over 30 employees and $10 million from Austin Ventures and Redpoint Ventures. Then I joined KISSmetrics as director of customer acquisition & retention. While there, I founded and grew an e-commerce business on the side to 7-figures in year 1. I love bunnies and big fluffy dogs.
