I give voice to productsI started Market Maven having driven growth across B2B SaaS start-ups and scale-ups for over a decade. My approach is grounded in data & collaboration and is results-oriented.I soaked in why impactful products tick early on at Google and expanded my business acumen during my MBA at Ivey and in established corporates like Bell & The Weather Network. My GTM & Growth experiences were further defined as I built PMM departments ground-up at high-growth startups and scale-ups like Top Hat & Poka.Scaling the function across industries gave me the expertise to ensure your products and go-to-market strategies are built with a clear, unified voice in tune with your audiences.

Outside consulting - I enjoy spending time with my husband & Kat (our Mascot!), hiking & travelling, word games, and many genres of music. I am also a member of the Editorial Board for Ivey’s Alumni Magazine, which keeps me keep in-touch with my inner writer.
