Building profitable businesses that make the world a better place is my passion.
My career as an entrepreneur begin in 2005, when I co-founded Red Stamp, a correspondence platform on a mission to make relationships stronger, one tweet/test/post/card at a time. With over 2 million users and 10 million cards sent, Red Stamp was best known for its award-winning app and was acquired in 2013 by Taylor Corporation, one of the largest privately held companies in the United States. I served as CEO until 2016.
My next big entrepreneurial adventure was to help launch the award-winning Bright Health , where as Chief Marketing Officer I collaborated with health insurance veterans to craft a people-first mission, vision and values within the health insurance landscape and which Bright Health put into creative practice to drive top recruitment of any new health plan in the marketplace.
Currently, you’ll find me crafting culinary-first experiences that effortlessly connect Locals to the best of what is available in their growing region as Chief Marketing Officer for Local Crate.
Full consumer experience includes award-winning brand management at General Mills and Kaplan. I received my MBA in Marketing + Operations from Indiana University Kelley School of Business, a BA in Journalism from Drake University, and earned a Certificate of French Studies from the Universite Paris at Sorbonne.
