I unlock the potential of brands to better the world and the bottom line. As the VP of Marketing & E-Commerce at ecobee, I am leading a team to change the way people consume and conserve energy through the adoption of smarter wi-fi enabled thermostats.
I am a serial innovator. As the Director of Sustainability + Merchandising Innovation at Walmart e-commerce, I incubated new revenue streams to deliver economic and social impact. Most notably I developed a multi-channel trade-in program to help Walmart's customers turn high-quality gadgets into gift cards. I then built out a refurbishing infrastructure to bring these electronics to like-new condition for re-sale and keep them out of landfill. For these efforts, I was honored with Walmart's Innovation Champion Award, a fellowship with the Aspen Institute and by GOOD magazine as 1 of 100 people pushing the world forward in 2013.
I lead with purpose. I founded and developed Meal Exchange, mobilizing students to achieve a more secure and sustainable food system on campuses and in communities across the country. The non-profit organization has since expanded across Canada and to the United States and Australia, raised over $3M to feed those in need, and been recognized by TIME magazine as "revolutionary".
