The kitchen is my happy place; filled with friends, treasured memories, and most importantly: great food. I love working with entrepreneurs to innovate to make the kitchen healthier, tastier, and more sustainable.

What I did before

The bulk of my career has been in management consulting at L.E.K. Consulting, where I focused on biotech and pharmaceutical companies.

My education

I studied Environmental Sciences at Duke University and am currently working on my MBA at Harvard Business School (Class of 2024).

My book tip

The Lorax by Dr. Suess – nothing like a kids book to bring you back to your roots and remind you of your purpose.

My favorite cookbook

The Superiority Burger Cookbook tells you the secrets of my favorite vegetarian restaurant in NYC.

My guilty pleasure

Spending all night rewatching the best lip syncs on RuPaul’s Drag Race.
