  • What is one piece of advice you would give to a rising entrepreneur?

The best things in life often happen when you are feeling excited and terrified at the same time. Embrace it, take a deep breath when you need to, and in the immortal words of Dory: "just keep swimming."

  • What do you know today that you wish you would have known when you first got started in business?

It’s amazing how far you can go in business and in life by simply doing what you said you would do -- when you said you would do it.

  • What's your tech/startup prediction?

We will see more women and underrepresented people in tech, and it will be awesome!

Now for the fun stuff... 

  • Do you have pets? If yes, what are they and what are their names? Our goofy chocolate lab named Cinnamon.
  • What is your personal mantra? Those to whom much is given, much is expected.
  • What do you like to do in your free time? Travel, hike, watch live sports and music, and read.
  • What is your favorite comfort food? Breyer's Mint chip ice cream.
