Experience

My goal is to help companies succeed online. I have over 15 years of experience with internet companies ranging from B2C start-ups to billion dollar revenue B2B companies. I’ve managed all aspects of business production and development, including roles in eCommerce, operations, product development, and marketing.

Working closely with senior leadership teams to uncover opportunities I quickly and collaboratively help to define vision, strategy, and tactics for solutions. My differentiator is a unique history in overseeing execution of those solutions with a balance between user experience, design, development, and revenue.

I excel in managing complex product roadmaps, working globally, and managing product launches on time and within budget. I’ve built performing teams from scratch and turned around existing teams, and have a personal drive to build career plans to foster growth and identify leaders.
