I was born and raised in Chicago and graduated from the University of Michigan, where I studied psychology and communications. I spent my twenties marketing industries ranging from entertainment to travel, telecom, CPG, finance / fintech, local retail, and more. My thirties have been about building my own businesses.
I’ve always loved rollerblading and making things from scratch.
Fun fact: In 2009 I opened a unique Etsy shop called Adore a Jar Bakery. I sold ready-to-eat vegan and gluten free jar cakes with a one-month shelf life. I had a dumb-camera, a case of mason jars, and no idea what an artisanal maker was. Over 250 made-to-order jar cakes went out during my corporate job lunch hour the first year.
