What are some highlights from your professional background?
My story started as an entrepreneur with a first-to-market consumer footwear brand that I grew from the ground up.

I connected with the mission and understood the pain points for small business owners. I also had recent experience in B2B software and startup marketing, so it was natural fit.
What’s your role?
I lead our marketing efforts which broadly includes building our brand and acquiring users for our platforms. I also oversee the Marketplace team which encompasses the customer experience including front-end UI design and product development.
