What does a typical day look like for you?
Every day starts with a walk to my favorite coffee shop (S/O Blackhand!) for an iced coffee. While enjoying my coffee, I jump into my inbox and start responding to the plethora of emails that accumulated over night. I then head into the office for the morning stand up with my team. Here we discuss the projects everyone is working on for that day and we discuss the possible hurdles they will encounter. We then prioritize our tasks and begin to work!
What inspired you to start your company?
Growing up, I had a ton of tutors. My problem was rarely with the material I was learning, as much as the organizational and time management skills that would help me complete the work as efficiently and effectively as possible. This is why I decided to create an online tutoring platform that focuses on the ecosystem that supports the child in a holistic manor. It is this holistic approach that has allowed for our students to not only increase their grades, but also increase their confidence and accountability when it comes to their studies.
What’s your favorite thing about Virginia?
My favorite thing about Virginia is the quality of life that comes with the startup budget. Whether it be the amazing food, breweries or a flying squirrels game, there is always something to keep you busy while operating on a startup’s budget.
