Hi, I’m Kimberly! I have spent the last few years leading marketing for one of California's leading Cannabis brands in the wellness space and I am now consulting with a number of brands, retailers, and investors in the category. I have over 15 years of developing purpose driven brands and stories. I have spoken at a number of key conferences including TedWoman, SXSW and was named of the top leaders to watch in tech by the Huffington Post. I have worked at several Blue Chip companies like Proctor&Gamble, the NFL, and Accenture. I founded House of Mikko, one of the early pioneers of the Beauty Influencer movement in 2009. I later went on to help raise millions of dollars for startups around the world and have developed growth strategies for digital brands such as YouTube stars Smosh, Scooter Braun’s Bkstg, and the SIRI spinout Desti.
I have two undergraduate degrees from the University of Pittsburgh and a MBA from the University of Michigan. I live in Los Angeles, where I perform standup comedy in my free time and am working on my 42nd passport stamp.
