A New Adventure — Freight Brokering
I have been in the startup space now for the last two years as VP of Sales for a company called OwnLocal. Being in company with 20 other people is a whole lot different than with 75. Quadrupling revenue in less than two years took a lot of grit, hard work and some incredible colleagues.
Although my work there is not done and they still have so much growth ahead, I’m pivoting directions to take on a higher challenge with potentially a greater impact. Using technology to solve the fragmented world of freight. I owe it to myself to try, to women professionals to be fearless, and to everyone out there that believes your future is what you make of it.
