CO-FOUNDER & CEO
Katya’s career began in 2007 with a niche in sales for tech startups in the media measurement space. After six very successful years at Critical Mention, she became number one in the sales division, bringing in approximately half of the company’s revenue and closing three of its largest deals. Later, Katya went on to become the Global Director of Sponsorship Sales at Social Media Week where she not only built custom partnership programs but also programmed 5000 person events. Katya's passion, however, has always been in connecting and learning about people and in supporting mother's with a mission. In 2014, she launched Heymama with best friend Amri Kibbler. As Co-Founder & CEO, Katya is currently building the community from the ground up at heymama, focusing on vetting and developing meaningful partnerships with brands and members to find each other in a very cluttered space. She hopes this leads to connection, inspiration and resources to mothers who seek it everywhere. When she’s not working, she’s rock climbing with her daughter Liliana or binge-watching Game of Thrones and eating way too much burnt caramel chocolate with her boyfriend Craig.
