My Journey 🗺

This week, I’m sharing the deets about how I got to where I am right now, here chatting with you.

Since its a question I get a lot!

Here’s what my journey has looked like so far:

Started as an assistant for a woman running a domestic violence nonprofit outside of Boston in 2009. ⤵

⤹ Worked alongside her and transitioned into managing her operations and grants for over 6 years.

⤹ Started taking working with more clients on website design + ops work.

⤹ Graduated from Babson College with a business degree specializing in entrepreneurship.

⤹ Took a 5 month contract in Northern Uganda implementing a center for entrepreneurship (during which I met Jacob!)

⤹ Took a 1+ year contract directing social service programs in Central Uganda.

⤹ Managed the day-to-day operations of a startup e-commerce company that scaled from roughly 200K to 5M in sales during my four years.

⚡️ Here today with you! ⚡️

If there’s one thing that I’ve learned throughout all of this… its that I freaking love working alongside entrepreneurs in the early + growth stages of their businesses.

That and I’m a complete ops + systems nerd. 🤓

Looking at your journey so far, what’s one thing that you’ve learned about yourself?
