I am an entrepreneur and educator. Currently, I serve as Managing Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Venture Valley Mentors in Springfield, MA. I’ve also served as Managing Director for the Velocity Accelerator in Birmingham, AL and NMotion Accelerator in Lincoln, NE.

Prior to managing accelerators, I founded Kids Calendar, a startup serving local families in five cities across the US, which I sold in 2017.

Through my experiences as a founder and accelerator director, I’ve developed a keen understanding of how to apply innovative methodologies like Design Thinking, Lean Startup, and Agile to understand problems, design businesses, and build solutions people love.

In a prior life, I have also been an educator and professional development coach, helping individuals and teams for over 12 years experience in the private and public sector. Throughout my career in education, my work focused on personalized, responsive instruction and interactive, hands-on content. I received my Master’s degree from Columbia University in 2005.

Today, I combine my passion for product & business design with my education background to deliver hyper-targeted and customer-focused training and product/program development for accelerators, startup ecosystems, and entrepreneurs.
