About Me

I learned to juggle flaming torches when I was 12. This skill has translated well into adulthood where I juggle many responsibilities. I'm CEO of Preservation Dyehouse, offering dyeing as a service to textile companies. I'm Program Director for both Flywheel Coworking and Mixxer Makerspace, and I'm Director for New Ventures Accelerator. I love Winston-Salem, my hometown. We have a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem, and many partners are committed to working together to support entrepreneurs. As Startup Grind Chapter Director, I oversee Startup Grind Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and Davidson. If you're an entrepreneur in one of those markets, I'd love to meet you!
