Innovation doesn't happen when we withdraw from the world, but rather when we engage with it. Let me be your compass and your guide to explore new opportunities for your business, organization or corporate team.

A little bit about myself:

Innovator. Marketer. Connector. I am a curious explorer whose purpose is to drive purposeful innovation by connecting people to people and people to ideas. I've spent years organizing programs and initiatives that provided me a front row seat to some of the most common challenges and popular solutions in corporate innovation. Even the most traditional industries - from insurance, to government, to nonprofits - are beginning to evolve their mindsets and focus when it comes to where, how and why they innovate.

I am the founder of two companies (JAWBRAIN and SpyComps) and a partner at InnoPower, an organization building inclusive innovation ecosystems in Indiana and beyond. I am also Assistant Director of The Society of Innovators at Purdue Northwest that serves the innovation communities in Northwest Indiana and Greater Chicagoland region. Prior to these roles, I was Executive Director of Centric from 2016-2019 where I led the organization's efforts to connect, educate and celebrate Indiana's problem solvers. Before Centric, I spent more than a decade as the US Marketing Director for Israel-based Keter Plastic, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of resin-based household and garden consumer products, working directly with some of the largest retailers in the world.

A graduate of Butler University, I am extremely active in Indiana’s innovation and entrepreneurship communities and am a member of the Hive Global Leaders network.
