    Inspiring others to imagine and achieve their aspirations is my passion, and retail is embedded in my DNA. After a formative career with one of the industry’s greats, Macy’s, I discovered that if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.

    In my initial role at Microsoft, I guided US retail and consumer goods companies to imagine and achieve transformative digital innovation. In 2022, I’m transitioning into a role supporting the robust ecosystem of technology partners who develop and implement solutions on Microsoft’s platform, to extend our collective value and impact for retailers and brands across the globe.
