What did you do before joining LS&Co.?
I spent the last decade at Starbucks, where I had the opportunity to bring mobile ordering to life, evolve the Starbucks Rewards program and launch dozens of impactful programs.

What attracted you to LS&Co.?
Levi Strauss & Co. is such an iconic company, and the products are incredible. The company’s impact on culture and bold stances on social issues align with who I am. I’m so excited to be a part of the team and to help bring our direct-to-consumer strategy to life through digital!
What is your secret dream career?
I’d love to be a beekeeper who sells honey and other bee products at the farmer’s market. It’s my retirement dream!
Where was your favorite vacation?
A trip to Finland, in the middle of winter, to chase the Northern Lights. We barely saw the Northern Lights, but dog sledding was a highlight.
List five things that make you happy.
My family, being outdoors, seeing other people win, marionberry pie with a homemade crust and learning something new.
