Tell us about where you work and what you do there.

Senior Partner Manager for East! I manage a network of 150+ agencies to activate and educate them on Gorgias. We plan fun events together and create a lot of co-marketing materials.

How would you describe yourself?

I’m very much an extrovert! I love meeting people. I grew up internationally in Japan, Austria, and Belgium and always had an ability to adapt to cultures around me. I’m obsessed with travel and skiing!

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I see myself venturing out on my own entrepreneurial journey. I’m very excited to own and launch a product that hasn’t existed before in eCommerce.

What do you think has been your biggest professional success so far?

I think being able to speak on panels and share the stage with eCommerce influencers. I never thought I’d be able to share the stage with someone like Dr. Barbara Sturm! I think it helped with my public speaking skills and allowed me to cherish my value as a professional.

Name an eCommerce brand you admire and why.

I absolutely love Pangaia — they revolutionized eco-friendly with their sweatsuits and I just love their clothes!
