I am a marketing expert with more than 25 years of experience working with businesses ranging from pre-revenue startups to those in the Fortune 100. Prior to founding Argentum Strategy Group in 2006, my background included selling for Procter & Gamble, market research for Westvaco, and general management and P&L leadership positions at Kraft Foods.
I earned an MBA from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management, and graduated cum laude from Duke University with a dual degree in biology and history. I have been a guest lecturer at Kellogg and at the University of Chicago’s Polsky Accelerator. As a New Venture Challenge judge I am also a mentor for Techstars, Future Founders and the Polsky Accelerator; I also teach marketing strategy at 1871.
I am on the Advisory Board of ZipFit and Po Campo, both Chicago startups, and have also been an informal advisor to GiveForward, InContext Solutions and The Stylisted.
