What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

I am incredibly transparent about starting a company and raising outside investment, including friends & family, angels, VCs and regulation CF (crowdfunding for equity.) I am happy to connect others with people in my network. I am also a great source of information on surfing in Costa Rica.

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

Raising our pre-seed round.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

My intention is to connect with other amazing, dynamic women and mamas. As a founder of a fast-growing start-up, my experience is intense and extreme, and it's hard finding others who have been there. I'd love to find those women, and support them by being a peer.
