What’s been your biggest professional accomplishment so far in your career?

My biggest accomplishment was taking over my team from our CEO Christopher Luise in 2021. He’s a tremendous leader, and I was grateful and extremely humble stepping into his shoes to lead our sales team. It has been an amazing learning experience, and the team continues to evolve and grow.

How are you involved in the community?

I worked with the CT River Valley Chamber to start the Women’s Networking Group “WAVES.” Bringing business women together in our community is very important to me. Supporting and understanding working women’s challenges is critical to our success. I’m passionate about creating a safe space for local business women to connect.

What do you like to do outside of work?

Outside of work, you can usually find me with my husband and daughters. If we aren’t out looking for new adventures, I’m riding my Peloton, supporting small local businesses, attending various concerts or spending time with family.

Why do you deserve to be a 40 Under Forty?

• Devoted to being a female leader in the technology industry.

• Strong career growth, holding top sales for an entire year at ADNET in 2021.

• Being a leader in a company named one of HBJ’s Best Places to Work for the last 10 years.

• One of the founding women of the CT River Valley Women’s Networking Group “WAVES.”

Fun Fact

I’m an avid Phish fan, traveling to new locations yearly to concerts with my brother.
