How I can help you

I can help clients think through their ideas and decide what action is best for them to take to make them a reality. Whether you are starting a new business or growing an existing business, I work with you, and for you, to achieve your goals. I was the co-founder of a mission-driven online grocery store that scaled to serve hundreds of thousands of customers across 38 states, with over 1,500 employees. But before we grew that large, we were 3 people in a warehouse, and before that we were just 3 people with an idea. I haven't forgotten my roots! I'm excited to share that expertise of how to start and scale a food business with Maine's entrepreneurs. I'm also especially excited to help New Mainers start businesses and achieve prosperity. Specialties include starting and scaling mission-driven businesses, launching brands and helping you assemble the best team you can.
