I am the Co-Founder & CEO Of Elektra Health, a next-gen healthcare platform on a mission to smash the menopause taboo. Elektra Health is empowering the 50M women currently navigating menopause in the US with evidence-based education, care & community. We’re bringing women’s health into the 21st century. Since founding Elektra Health in 2019, I have raised over $4M in funding from investors including Alexis Ohanian's 776 Fund and Flare Capital Partners and have been featured in Fast Company, NY Times, Techcrunch, and Forbes. I started my career in technology as the sixth employee at Artsy. Over the course of four years, I built our content partner business from the ground up and saw Artsy grow from six employees to 75 employees with 2000+ partners in four continents. After Artsy, I founded the MIT NYC Startup Studio and served as Executive Director. In this capacity, I created and led a rigorous three-month educational and mentorship-based accelerator experience for current MIT student entrepreneurs. I also worked as VP of Network at Human Ventures, an NYC-based start-up studio that founds and builds consumer-facing technology with world-class entrepreneurs. I hold a B.A. from Vanderbilt University and an MBA from Sloan MIT, where I received the Martin Trust Community Fellow Award '16 and the Patrick J. McGovern, Jr Entrepreneurship Award '16.
