Drive-Thru is an app that makes every restaurant a drive-through.

What does a typical day look like for you?
I am a stay-at-home mom of two. I balance both my professional and family life by making sure I use all my available time well. My mornings are focused on work while my kids are at daycare. I mostly have everything planned ahead for that day the night before. My afternoons are focused on my family until their bedtime at 7 p.m. I am used to working late at night and completing my daily tasks before bed.
What inspired you to start your company?
The Drive-Thru app came as an answer to my own personal problem. As a mom, I would always find myself at fast food drive-throughs. Even though I wanted to eat something else, drive-throughs were easier with my kids in the car. So I thought, why isn’t there an easier way to pick up food? This is how the idea of this app was formed and I started designing its UI.
What’s your favorite thing about Virginia?
Virginia is my home state. I love its changing seasons and colors. My favorite thing about Richmond is its community and how close and helpful they are. I love raising my girls here.
