Associate Program Director
I help nascent entrepreneurs develop the skills and knowledge necessary to deliver validated products and services to market. A connector with drive and creativity, I streamline essential processes and build relationships to promote growth and success. I co-founded a startup organization that provides a platform for young companies to ask for a hand-up from the audiences (150-250 ppl) that gather monthly. Having coached hundreds of teams to pitch their businesses, I enjoy aiding early-stage companies in honing their key messages for a variety of audiences. A 2017 recipient of the Albany Business Review 40 Under 40 award, I am also certified in Lean Launch Pad evidence-based entrepreneurship education.
