Taking the best of fashion and business to your stage

Here’s what I’ll bring to your next event.

A sought-after keynote speaker, moderator, panelist, and workshop leader, I’ve been at the helm of Scaling Retail for close to 10 years and am the CEO and Co-founder of Rendall Co.

In my role as an angel investor and advisor, I consistently champion innovative, diversity-driven startup ecosystems. I’m the co-author of Creating Fashion Websites That Sell (2016) and the soon-to-be-released, You Don’t Complete Me, a true story for the broken-hearted who want to love themselves but don’t know how.

My passion for helping small businesses get the start they need, coupled with my longtime experience working with fashion leaders like Macy’s, Barney’s, and Gucci, positions me perfectly to deliver impactful, insightful, and relevant messages to people at all stages of development and growth.

Having split my time between NYC and LA for the past 18 years, I recently moved back to San Francisco, my hometown, to take part in the LEAD Executive program at Stanford University’s Business School, becoming a graduate in 2021.
