I grew up in Northern New Jersey and at the young age of 1, I was in my first play. For as long as I can remember music, theatre, and public speaking were a part of my life. My mother is a CPA and I inherited her love of numbers, logic and systematic thinking. And to this day, whether it’s art or science I love finding and telling stories about what I am doing.
I started my career in construction management and due to the financial crisis, I was thrust into my first career pivot. That experience taught me a lot about how to navigate career transitions and how to leverage use my storytelling to build trust and rapport quickly. Relationship style management has been core to my success as I have built and scaled products and teams for many tech organizations including NextRoll Inc., Factual (Foursquare), Verizon and PayPal. After completing the first Grand Quest cohort, I joined the team as a coach to help other people navigate their own quest.
