Bio

I graduated from Dickinson College with a BA in International Business and Management in 2010. After working for NBC and as a production assistant on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, I helped start a surf-inspired fitness company and received funding from Mark Cuban on ABC's Shark Tank. As The Director of Marketing and Media for Surfset Fitness, my main responsibilities involved sponsor activation, coordinating press and media appearances, orchestrated domestic and international trade shows all while developing the brand image. I expanded the company into 70 locations and over 500 certified trainers in less than 6 months. I am now consulting for a medical device company that is launching a new product that helps patients with poor blood circulation in their lower extremities (PVD). I am is the Director of Sales and Marketing. The team is currently getting funding as it plans to launch the product in the next month which will be the first time it enters any market. I am also working on a project with an engineer from MIT and a graduate of Plymouth state. We are making wooden sunglasses in a unique way. Very early conceptual stage but we have the intentions of incorporating once they get a product we are happy with.
