ENTREPRENEUR INNOVATOR AUTHOR
I’m an unlikely entrepreneur. I was born into a family that believes women are meant to make babies and spaghetti, not multi-million dollar businesses. But through several acts of providence, also known as life’s twists and turns, I was given the freedom to turn the seed of an idea into a thriving business.
From my kitchen table in the suburbs of Chicago, I built a tech company that turned a $20 billion industry on its head and grew from $1 to $22 million in the first three years. Inc. Magazine recognized my company as the 8th fastest growing company in the country and we were #1 on Crain’s Fast-Fifty.
Now more than ever, Americans need a way to invest in themselves and each other, creating jobs, fueling innovation, and changing the game for good. My mission was to build a better, friendlier model for funding entrepreneurs. After years of research, hard work and surrounding myself with a brilliant team, we’ve done it! SkinX is a platform that gets everyone’s skin in the game!
