I am a startup executive and investor with a passion for building ideas into real businesses, and a focus on leading Business Operations and Customer Success.
My strengths are a well-honed toolbox for growing startups into maturity, an understanding of what growth looks like from early-stage startups to established organizations, and a down-to-earth, straightforward approach to evaluating people and ideas
Leading teams at AppDirect, a venture-backed cloud delivery platform, gave me hands-on experience with what it really takes for a startup to scale rapidly. While there I built and led teams in Customer Success and Business Operations. During my tenure at AppDirect the company grew from 20-something to 120 employees and 20x revenue.
McKinsey gave me hands-on leadership experience, making recommendations at the C-suite and Board levels, and working with frontline employees to execute on the ground. I worked with companies in the technology, financial, and consumer sectors. Areas of focus included operational effectiveness and customer planning.
I began my career as a lawyer, but even while working for a preeminent judge I knew that I was more passionate about building businesses.
