I am passionate about building and running businesses. Here at Synthesis, I’m focused on engaging stakeholders, driving GTM efforts, facilitating teamwork, and overseeing operations. I enjoy both high-level strategy work and tactical execution – knowing both are essential to success.
In my previous role, I spent 3+ years as the VP of Strategic Planning at True. I worked closely with the co-CEOs to lead growth initiatives, spearhead cross-functional teams, and ensure smooth operations firmwide. I continue to manage True’s Leadership Development Program for high-potentials, helping to groom their future leaders.
I have a degree from MIT in Mechanical Engineering, with a concentration in Entrepreneurship. I gravitate towards solving problems that combine strategy, people, and processes. I started in management consulting for a hi-tech boutique firm in Silicon Valley, then became a senior strategy analyst at Canon USA, pursued independent business coaching/consulting, and served for 8 years as COO for a natural food startup.
With a passion for giving back, I’m also the Co-Founder and President of the Board for a national non-profit that provides fitness, nutrition, and mentorship to at-risk youth. As a former gymnast, retired elite rugby player, and current CrossFitter, I also value the leadership lessons found in athletics – working hard alongside others not only teaches resilience and teamwork but is also fun and rewarding.
Whether it’s c-suite executives, high-potentials, underserved teens, or teammates, I believe in creating opportunities for people to discover their potential and be the best they can be.
