I’m a seasoned startup generalist with experience helping 40+ companies scale, particularly around people and process optimization. Currently I’m the Chief of Staff at Impactive
, a leading progressive political technology startup. Before Impactive, I launched a six-figure startup consultancy, worked in VC, and as an early team member at a company that grew from Seed to Series B. I also graduated from Harvard with an AB cum laude
in Sociology, a discipline that greatly informs my perspective on people and process.
On the people side, I’ve managed talent operations for hundreds of contract staffers, overseen recruitment for C-suite executives, managed teams ranging from 1-50, and scaled cultures through seismic organizational shifts.
Process-wise, I’ve built countless systems and workflows for marketing, sales, product, people, operations, and even engineering teams. I’ve watched some processes accommodate years of scale, watched others fail miserably, and have a strong point of view on when and how to insert process as a strategic point of leverage in business growth.
(I’m also an experienced marketer, with almost a decade of brand building expertise. I’ve worked across the full marketing stack, from visual design and creative concepting to copywriting, content, social, email, and more.)
I live in Seattle, WA with my fiancé. Someday we’ll adopt the sphynx cat of my dreams.
