I’ve been a senior executive and leader in Silicon Valley and in the Boston biotech sector, where I developed a reputation for driving domestic and international organizational growth through innovation, global market expansion and building robust cross-cultural teams. I led a food diagnostics business to doing business in 100 countries then sold it to multi-billion dollar player, I missed the entrepreneurial environment, and pivoted to consulting for the business I sold, then became an angel investor, advisor and board member to early stage companies. I invest for impact, provide consulting and encourage a more diverse, inclusive startup ecosystem. I currently sit on the board of QSM Diagnostics in the Veterinary Diagnostics space and am an advisor for foodspace in the food tech space and Embeba in the natural products CPG space. My love of seeing promising technologies and passionate innovative teams drives me to invest, advise and consult to the next generation of founders. Am a member of two angel groups, Launchpad Venture Group, the largest angel investment group in the Northeast (3rd largest in US) with 170 members which invests in life science & tech and Branch Venture Group and (Branchventuregroup.com) which invests in food, beverage and food tech.
