Raised in Rhode Island, I planned to have a career science-based, with a focus on marine biology. Attending Texas A&M in Galveston, Texas, I started working for Abercrombie and Fitch, and was drawn to the science of retail.
I led stores and districts for Abercrombie and Fitch before leaving for Urban Outfitters. I led their Boston flagships, then left for San Francisco to work for Gap.
After leading teams at both HQ and their flagship store, I was ultimately laid off during the great recession. I moved to Los Angeles to focus on marketing mission-driven organizations.
Since, I have worked for TOMS shoes, LEGO, Zen Hospice Project, the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery, and owned my own marketing and brand company.
Today, I live in San Francisco with my partner.
