Full bio

I caught the entrepreneurial bug after completing a decade working as a freelance project manager for concerts, musicals, and theatrical productions. Not only was I responsible for overseeing the success of the show itself but I oversaw the transportation, logistics, and shipping of truckloads of expensive equipment from coast-to-coast.

Previous entrepreneurial successes include a boutique communications consulting firm, SinHa Comm Consult. The company successfully promoted and built awareness of multiple events throughout the Greater Houston region and lead to full time employment with the Houston Food Bank. For several years, I managed the donation of perishable foods (valued at $2.4 million dollars) from more than 250 grocery stores throughout 18 counties.  The processes implemented under my management lead to an increase valued at over $50 million dollars according to Feeding America’s conversion factor of $1.62 per pound of food.

I graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Arts in Corporate and Organizational Communications, a certificate in Management, Leadership and Fundraising from the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance, and a semester abroad in India studying Sustainable Development and Social Change. Then I received a certificate in Finance from Rice University. Lastly, while building Velour’s infrastructure, I obtained a Master’s of Science in Project Management from Walden University.
