With 20 years of operational and account management experience under my belt, I have worked in high profile hyper-growth tech start-ups like Facebook and Yext as well as large, established media players like Yahoo. As an early addition to the Facebook team in 2007, I designed and built the business’ critical operational infrastructure in order to scale the account management team from just 4 people in 2 locations to 60 people in 6 locations. While at Facebook, I also managed revenue from $36 million to $1.4 billion. Following Facebook, as the VP of Client Services at Yext, I managed a team of 45 account managers, covering the US, Europe and Asia, building and implementing a scalable process to drive operational excellence, leading to a successful IPO.
When Jeni Howe, founder of Baby Botanical and close family friend gave me the opportunity to join her advisory board it made sense on a couple of levels. Firstly to be apart of something that adds to the community at a grassroots level is compelling but then to do it with a close friend is a gift. I love the idea of being able to use the skills I have learned on a larger scale and applying them to something that matters at a community level.
