Guest Bio:

Currently on the journey of a lifetime, helping to revolutionize the way women dress. A graduate of Dartmouth College and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Sloan School, I work to make women’s lives a bit easier with Seattle-based startup- high-tech, high-touch company, Armoire, which offers a true “wardrobe as service” experience. Busy women need no longer waste hours scrolling through endless retail webpages, or feeling their way through crammed racks of clothing; for a flat, monthly subscription fee, Armoire members gain access to an unlimited, curated virtual closet of high-end pieces from dresses, to sweaters, to jeans, and more. Passionate, upbeat, and success-driven, I have worked across diverse contexts in organizations both small and large, with roles in marketing, business development, product management, SEO and social media. Additionally, I played a key role in the creation of internet startups Rover.com and TravelPost.com as well as two major Microsoft product launches: Internet Explorer 8 and Windows 7. This year, I was fortunate enough to be featured on the Puget Sound Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 list, in The Seattle Times, and was invited to speak at Amazon, Microsoft, American Express, Harvard Business School, MIT, and the UW Foster School of Business.
