Spoke on a panel
Loved speaking on this panel featuring incredible money making advice from powerhouse leaders, movers, shakers, and MOMS at the HeyMama annual summit! One of the best ways to spend a Saturday morning.

Invested in a Seed Round
Made an angel investment
Wrote my first angel check in support of a terrific founder changing the way we think about personalization in healthcare πŸ‘ΌπŸΌ πŸ’ΈΒ 

We use data every day to guide decision-making on everything from business strategy to personal finance. Even so, many of us are still making important health decisions based on one-size-fits-all protocols and recommendations. Rootine makes critical health data more widely accessible and is moving the industry forward by leveraging data, science, and personalized technology to improve health outcomes on an individual level.Β 

I am thrilled to invest in and support this world-class company, team, and its two terrific founders, Daniel and Rachel.Β

Had a baby
So happy to have become a mother in 2020 (at the start of the pandemic 😱).

Motherhood is not a job, it is a career. And it can be an incredible career advantage.Β 

In all industries and at all levels, moms are passed over for new jobs and promotions based on outdated biases of what motherhood means – the motherhood penalty vs the fatherhood bonus. The data tells the story:

  • 69% of US workers say mothers are more likely to be passed up for a new job than other employees
  • 41% view moms in the workplace as less devoted to their work, and 38% judge them for needing a more flexible work schedule
  • On average, men's earnings increased more than 6% on having children, while women's decreased 4% for each child they have – and the gap persists even after controlling for factors like experience, education, hours worked, and spousal incomes
It is time to recognize motherhood for what it really is: an endless source of professional skills. 91% of workers agree moms bring unique skills (agility, flexibility, emotional intelligence, communication skills) to leadership roles – anyone who has ever spent more than 5 minutes with an infant or toddler can understand why.Β
