my story

As someone who rarely accepts things as they are, I am resolute in supporting the success of individuals disrupting our status quo. Passionate about innovation, I believe whole-heartedly that stronger startups build a better community and by extension, change our world. 

However, to achieve all this, we must provide equitable opportunities to everyone in business. I empower entrepreneurs from all backgrounds and help them successfully launch and scale their company. I am determined to see others thrive.  

As Raine Digital’s Vice-President of Organizational Innovation, I empower excellence through close collaboration with each client. Implement design thinking practices that help companies produce disruptive, human-centered solutions. I strengthen internal structures and inspire innovation by providing individualized attention to each company’s branding, messaging, presenting, and culture. 

I am a published author, a third-degree black belt in mixed martial arts and a lifelong learner with experience in project management, education, and the startup community. I am grateful to have been Siemens’  Employee of the Year in 2001, received the Phoenix Suns’ Innovative STEM award in 2013, and acknowledged as the Seed Spot Teacher of the Year in 2015. I am a coach for 1 Million Cups, a mentor for the Co+Hoots Foundation and a national mentor for Seed Spot.
