In past professional capacities, I've grown social media engagement channels many times over (globally) as well as gone through two rounds of website re-builds including a mobile app build. I appreciate the agile process and have a great sense for strategic planning and user engagement.
I've applied to the Founder Institute in Montreal and been accepted but declined my spot, for now. I did it to validate my idea and to get a better foot in the start-up community. I'm looking forward to re-applying in the Fall of 2016 and following through with the application, hopefully with a technical cofounder.
Personally, I'm a wife and mom to 3 small children, they are the inspiration and driving force for my idea. I'm deeply interested in everything entrepreneurial and I love sitting down to brain storm solutions to problems people didn't know they had.
In addition, I've participated in a company driven innovation program where over 3000 employees across Canada and the US participated in building out potential new business ideas to source out untapped areas for growth. I was selected to be a part of the top 100 innovators who moved forward with an accelerator program which culminated in a Shark Tank-like business idea presentation in Feb of 2016. This gave me the chance to both learn and grow professionally and to apply my experience to my big idea.
