COO, FLERISH

 

Bio:

Marie has always been a puzzle-solver.

As an accomplished marketing and business development leader, she knows what is needed to bring the right people and tools to the table. She uses her ability to energize others, capture engagement through storytelling and collaborative relationships to find meaningful solutions. By aligning with companies who bring technology for good and people with purpose, her work can be amplified and scaled. 

Marie has spent her entire life looking around the next corner and exploring new, exciting opportunities. After a two-decade career in coffee – doing everything from creating products, equipment & international business relationships- she explored industries such as digital health, labor, technology and consulting. She recently launched the Starbucks alumni community- the Green Apron Alliance- which now spans 20 countries with over 10,000 members.

Marie lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family and their newly adopted puppy exploring the sea, mountains, and wildlife that is part of that region’s DNA. Marie loves to travel, living off of street food and sharing experiences with random people on her global travels.

There is a story in every face and smile.
