I'm a product marketing leader who drives growth for B2B SaaS companies through market research, product positioning, and GTM execution. I'm currently launching something new as a PMM at Lattice.
I started my career in 2015 at LinkedIn after graduating from Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism. Moving from Chicago to SF to NYC in less than a year was a trip (and a half), but it gave me the chance to live in three amazing cities. In my 4.5 years at LinkedIn, I worked with our sales team to help make global customers who hire on LinkedIn more productive and successful, influencing more than $200M in sales during my tenure.
In December 2021, I graduated from NYU Stern’s Tech MBA program. Most recently, I was Chief of Staff at Sounder—a Series A startup that helps media companies and ad marketplaces grow their audio businesses through AI-powered data and insights. In my role, I led product marketing, brand marketing, business operations, and investor relations (and everything else at the company without a title), helping the company 5x ARR in less than a year.
In my free time, you can find me writing my newsletter (Gridology), making silly AI-generated art, taking too many pictures of my doggo, or acting as commissioner to an overly competitive 22-person fantasy football league.
