During her time there, she ran seller education programs nationally, led a multi-city national marketplace movement, won a Webby Award for the video series Etsy: Make Your Living, and established Etsy's first-ever student ambassador program. Through community programs, digital marketing and strategic partnerships, she surpassed Etsy's ambitious growth goals, year over year.
