How did you hear about DCLSC?

Through a friend and former colleague Mark Irwin.

What do you hope to get from -- and/or give to -- DCLSC?

I hope to be able to lend a female perspective on a very male dominated field and to let people know of the biggest trend in this country right now - Health. I hoepto leanr form others' experiences and perspectives and think Iwill at the last garner some good stories and meet some interesting people, but most likely will get a lot more from the group.

What is your specialty (or specialties) with respect to start-ups?

My interest is in health, nutrition and of course technology and using technology as one of the means to helping people take control of their health. I was part of the inaugual ecommerce team 10+ years ago at Discovery Communications when people were still worried about sharing their credit card info online and Google was still the college students' search engine. We were like a start up - lean and scrappy, but were excited in this then new industry, worked hard and had amazing results.


Corporate marketing professional, Certified Holistic Health Coach and Nutrition Counselor, passionate about healthy living.
