About the Author

Quotabelle designs smart, distinctive products that introduce female role models to the world; from family rooms to classrooms, offices to boardrooms, studios to sports fields, in print and online. The company is solving a quote supply problem uncovered through research--that less than 15% of the millions of quotes shared every day are by women and girls. Most quotes are unsourced, many are misattributed. Very often, quotes shared are written or said by the same visible few. Working with female writers, researchers, designers and craftspeople, Quotabelle is adding missing voices back into history and ensuring remarkable women and girls aren't overlooked going forward. Quotabelle has published two anthologies of female wisdom: Beautifully Said and Grit & Grace.

She and her husband now live in Northern Virginia. Mom to two daughters, she stepped away from the corporate world to become a social entrepreneur who spends her days making sure more female role models emerge.
