Chief Growth Officer - Toast

With over 15 years of experience in leadership, mentoring, and strategic team development, I am the co-founder and Chief Growth Officer at Toast, a talent partner that works towards increasing gender diversity within the tech industry.

As a Certified Change Practitioner, I bring a wealth of expertise in business process improvement, talent planning and strategies, digital transformation, and change management to Toast and its community of diverse and passionate women.

My core value and mission is to make a difference by disrupting the status quo and inspiring people to think outside the box, reimagine the possible, and act like owners.

I am a serial relationship builder, a savvy problem-solver, and an exclamation mark personality. I devote a great deal of my time coaching emerging leaders and building psychological safety in teams.

I am also actively involved in various organizations that aim to develop more women to leading positions in business, tech, and social innovation, such as WNORTH, YWiB, Chic Geek, and United Way. I live by the adage, “Work Hard and Be Nice to People,” and I am passionate about people and impact.
