I spent 6 years at Uber in a variety of operations leadership roles, growing with the company from 500 employees to >20,000. In early 2020, I left to get back to where my passion truly lies: startups. I love working with teams to help their businesses scale. Most recently, I was Vice President of Operations for Incredible Health, a Series A health-tech company that I helped grow to unicorn Series B valuation.
At Uber, I built a number of Ops organizations from scratch, in both the U.S. and Latin America, as well as in both the rideshare and micromobility business units. I got to learn about and solve the problems that many startups face every day: many opportunities to go after but limited bandwidth to do so, balancing the need to keep the lights on with the need to continuously grow, and figuring out how to scale without losing out on innovation.
What I bring to the table is a combination of incredible learnings from my work in the fast-growth tech world as well as my passion for organizational leadership and management. I've seen how a good idea can become a great one through exceptional execution, and I've seen how a great idea can become a bad one with poor execution or leadership. I believe that an organization's potential is defined by its leadership, management, and hiring practices, and I can bring many years of doing those things well (and many more years of learning from doing those things poorly) to bear for you.
I grew up in the Boston area and now live in San Diego, though I'll never stop rooting for the Patriots and Red Sox or drinking Dunkin'. I got my undergraduate degree in business at Washington University in St. Louis, with a double major in Organizational Behavior and Entrepeneurship.
