“I got my first glimpse into the world of software and tech as a teenager in braces running around the halls in a variety of roles for startups in Atlanta and have never looked back since. What inspires and motivates me most in my current role is witnessing the passion, tenacity, and determination that an entrepreneur possesses. I love working with founders who dream big but work doubly as hard to achieve their goals. Their passion truly drives me to set the bar high and roll up my sleeves to help them get to where they want to go.”
