About this Speaker

I am a dynamic woman with a doctorate in Molecular and Human Genetics and a deep drive to end isolation through innovation. I co-founded and am the CEO of Pheramor, the nation's first DNA-based dating app and also launched a secondary product called WeHaveChemistry.com. This web-based couples product helps them discover their love alchemy through a DNA test and socio-emotional questionnaire.

I have pioneered my career in the entrepreneurship, consumer genomics, and biotechnology. I have extensive experience in research, teaching, leadership, and fundraising. I am very involved in the Houston startup ecosystem having been involved with Rice courses, enventure, TMCx, and J&JLabs. I have consulted for biotech, big data, and AR companies. I enjoy mentoring new founders, particularly females, and speaking as a thought leader around the country on the future of romance, being a female founder, and raising capital in the South.

I also have non-profit experience as the fundraiser and then treasurer of Houston Roundup, an annual LGBTQIA Recovery conference. I cofounded Cooper's Crossroad, an organization that brings awareness to the effects of early childhood trauma and treatment for PTSD. I also enjoy fostering rescue dogs from my local shelter!

I am very dedicated to learning and have the ability to plan, develop, and execute projects independently as well as a member of a team. My strengths include leading, learning quickly, communication, and problem-solving. Let's chat about science, consumer genomics market, entrepreneurship, and breaking glass ceilings.
