Product-focused technology executive
I recently left OkCupid, and while exploring different opportunities I spend most of my time advising startups, mentoring and traveling to speak at tech events and meet CEOs and companies.

As OkCupid's Chief Product Officer, I led the Product, Design, Front-end Development, App Development, Marketing, Business Development and Customer Support teams. After the CEO's departure, I became one of two C-level executives heading the company through its IPO as part of the Match Group (MTCH- $~4.3B mkt cap).

Previously, I have held different leadership positions at Meetup, Zynga, Facebook and Eventbrite. I received an MBA from MIT and a BA and MA from the Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris, in France .

A three-time national ice skating champion, I've spent half of my life abroad. I've lived in 8 countries, worked in 16, traveled to 44 and speak 5 languages.

I often speak about technology, women leadership and diversity
Speaking topics:
  • Product management, user growth and data analytics
