My experience in the Personal Care, Cosmetic and HI&I Industries began in 2008 shortly after I graduated from college. I joined Coast Southwest and worked there for four years before transitioning to Chemtec Chemical Co. and most recently I supported the West Coast territory with E.T. Horn’s Care Elements team prior to joining Catalyst.
I've spent my entire career in raw material distribution specializing in Personal Care collaborating directly with brands, beauty incubators, product developers, formulators, and contract manufacturers. It's an honor to bring ingredients from premier global manufacturers to our clients to help spark creativity & innovation and bring stand-out products to market. I currently serve on the Board of Directors for Beauty Industry West (BIW), an LA-based non-profit, mutual-benefit organization serving the beauty industry and have also served as a committee member for the California Society of Cosmetic Chemists and You Be the Chemist program, the Chemical Education Foundation's academic competition that celebrates the science of chemistry and elevates STEM careers.
I'm an Orange County native, proud Cal State Fullerton alum (B.S. Biological Sciences, Cell Biology) where I was a member of Gamma Phi Beta sorority as well as a President of the Order of Omega Honor Society. I currently live in Irvine with my fiancé Brian and our two rescue kitties Ginger and Coco.
