‌For-profit Experience

  • As a for-profit leader, I have 35 years of practical on-the-ground experience working to build and scale small businesses into medium-sized businesses and beyond.‌
  • I served as CEO and CMO to venture-backed startups and founded, ran, and sold two successful marketing agencies: Open Marketing (content marketing) and Miller/Kadanoff (direct and interactive marketing).
  • I have built and optimized large content sites for Cisco and Knight Ridder, created the first ever internet advertising campaigns for Blue Shields and Wells Fargo Bank, built out email subscriber lists for Microsoft, and put in place technology infrastructure for startups and established businesses alike.
  • The early days of my career were spent at The Clorox Company, Apple Computer, and Sun Microsystems.



  • ‌Starting in June, 2020 I relocated from San Francisco to Portland Oregon with my husband Rich Mironov, our “Westie” Celeste, and Olivia the wonder cat. Our goal in doing this was to start a new adventure, free up money to travel, and slow down a bit when it was time to do so.
  • Rich and I have a grown daughter named Sasha who lives in Boston.
  • I have an MBA from Stanford and a BA from Harvard in Psychology and Social Relations.

I enjoy mentoring/coaching people early in their professional careers. Don’t be afraid to contact me if you think I can help.
