Bio
You may know me as startup founder, angel investor, voracious reader, avid blogger, and lover of spreadsheets. After the sale of my most recent startup, Mattermark, I decided to take a break from working a full-time job to focus on enjoying life in my new city of Denver, after 10 years in San Francisco. I took a 10 month sabbatical, and it was a much needed reset. I joined GitLab in early 2019 as the General Manager of Meltano, which is a fully remote data analytics startup being built within GitLab. I am now serving as interim Head of Corporate Marketing, covering for a friend who is on maternity leave until August. I write an investing newsletter called A Ticker A Day, and also co-author BuriedReads, an occasional newsletter, with my husband Kevin. I am also a partner in female-founder focused XFactor Ventures, where we are investing Fund 2. The Internet has a short attention span, but you might also recognize me from one of my previous entrepreneurial adventures: Cofounder & CEO of Mattermark — acquired by FullContact December 2017 Cofounder & CEO of Referly (Y Combinator Summer 2012) — R.I.P.
