Prior to starting Brixy, I was a vital member of the team responsible for building Thinkbaby & Thinksport, which successfully introduced an entire line of consumer goods free of endocrine disrupting chemicals. Under my leadership, Thinkbaby & Thinksport’s revenue and placements grew from start-up stage to an established business with products available at leading retailers across the country as well as a thriving Amazon and direct to consumer business. I’m passionate about health & wellness and love building healthy product brands.

The Eucalyptus Mint Shampoo Bar. It smells amazing. And, well, I’ve been getting a ton of compliments about my hair since I’ve been using it! 

Name 3 ways how you’re living an environmentally friendly lifestyle.

1. I’m fortunate to live near the ocean and have a deep appreciation for it.

I also participate in larger scale beach clean ups and support ocean-oriented non-profits like Surfrider. 2. My diet is vegetarian for my own health, the wellbeing of animals, and the health of the planet. 3. Purchasing with intention, focusing on items I will really use, that will last a long time, and are made by companies that align with my personal values.

Favorite quote?

“It’s about the work. Because if you’re worrying about yourself – if you’re thinking: ‘Am I succeeding? Am I in the right position? Am I being appreciated? – then you’re going to end up feeling frustrated and stuck. But if you can keep it about the work, you’ll always have a path. There’s always something to be done.”  -Barack Obama

This or That:

Shower or bath? Definitely shower. One of the most useful items I own is a shower timer so I don’t over do it!

Ocean or mountains? Ocean. All day long.

Sunny day or rainy day? Sunny day. The type of sunny day that turns the ocean dozens of shades of blue.

Early riser or night owl? When I’m hitting my stride, both! However, I’m naturally a night owl.
