Full bio

I am  the Founder of UsingMiles.com. I started the company after dealing with the frustration of losing over 26,000 miles in United MileagePlus and wondering why there wasn't a better way to manage and use her miles and points. My professional experience includes running the marketing dept. at an email marketing start-up in Silicone Valley and a variety of sales and business development positions at Fortune 500 companies. I am a mentor for the Denver Founder’s Institute and was a 2008 graduate from the Techstars Incubator out of Boulder, Colorado.
