Strategic, versatile, and results-driven CPG operator with 20+ years experience growing brands, categories and generating revenue & profit growth. I believe the best growth strategies come from a relentless understanding of the consumer. 

An entrepreneurial and decisive brand builder who thrives off of teamwork, consumer trends, numbers, agility, and ambiguity. Fueled by fast-paced, high-growth environments. Excels at reviving brands and product lines that have lapsed in market.  Mission-driven with a soft spot for digital-first brands in Food and Beauty - and their convergence into Wellness.​​

Champion of women-led and social impact ventures and passionate about expanding the number of successful female entrepreneurs and investors. This is my life's purpose.
