Why Localist?

After graduating from the University of Maryland with a degree in economics, I explored the idea of working outside of economic research because I wasn’t ready to start a Phd program. Besides, since high school I knew I wanted to work in the tech space because of its innovative computer science aspects and the unconventional work environment.

A career in sales served as an excellent entry point for me because it allows me to work in tech and, expanded my perspective on business development.

I joined the Localist team because I agree with its core values and recognize the impact of the product in the tech arena. It didn’t hurt that Localist is a cutting-edge company, always evolving to expand into different markets. Because of my love for learning about different aspects of sales and startup cultures, choosing a growing company was a no brainer.


A Little Bit About Me

I’m an avid long distance runner, yoga enthusiast and novice crossfitter from Baltimore, MD. I’m taking my fitness to the next level by training for my first half marathon this fall. As a huge STEM literacy advocate for children, I volunteer as a math tutor and LEGO robotics instructor at local public schools.

When I’m not giving back, you can find me attending music festivals, reading, tandem skydiving, and collecting more stamps in my passport.
