  • Professional Experience

    I currently serve as Business Development Manager for Fetch and oversee our east coast efforts.

     

    The vision is to leverage technology to transform shopping into an engaging, rewarding, and delightful experience. We're a vibrant team of innovators who have embarked on a journey to propel the grocery shopping experience into the 21st century. Fetch Rewards is a receipt scanning rewards app that gives everyday shoppers an easier way to save on everyday purchases, and streamline their shopping experience through smart planning features like lists and recipe inspiration. Brands are then offered a view into their shoppers 360 degree shopping habits to help create lasting engagement and loyalty.

     

    Previously, I connected leading CPG brands with early stage startups at Evol8tion and advised corporations on how to maximize their engagement with pro bono work and skilled volunteerism with NPower.

     

    And before that, I survived corporate gigs at NBCUniversal and MasterCard and cut my teeth at mobile technology startups MX Telecom and Velti (who both experienced liquidity events during my tenure).

    Vision

    The world is constantly changing. I meditate at the forefront of change. It's a good fit. In a today's climate, somebody needs to protect fragile ideas from corporate conservatism and myopic thinking. Might as well be me.
