I grew up in the Midwest in the US and have spent the past few years in the Bay Area. I now live in Seattle, Washington. Prior to CC, I built a startup leading our Business Operations and then co-founded a software startup where I led as CEO.​ I’m a dog mom who loves all outdoor activities - hiking, biking, skiing, and swimming (to name a few). You can often find me traveling to explore new areas of the country and world. I’m passionate about bringing more women into tech, crypto, and NFTs 💜

After growing up in Buffalo, NY and moving around the country, I’ve settled in Seattle, WA - and I love it! The most recent phase of my career has been spent at companies like Google and Meta (fka Facebook) leading in the project and program management space. I love organized docs, memorizing random facts, cooking and baking, all water sports, and anything involving animals. Women education and empowerment initiatives have been a central tenet at all phases of my life, and I feel honored to continue this life long passion with CC.

Esther

Head of Growth

Philly has been my hometown for many years now (go Birds). My professional background is in product development, design, and production. I later became a consultant for business development with a focus on implementing scaling strategies specifically for small businesses through tech, customer service and engagement. In other news, Satoshi Nakamoto was my first love. Initially I was drawn to the shared community ethos for a decentralized, nationless currency. Fast forward to 2021 and curiosity brought me to NFTs. I’m here to share ideas, brainstorm elaborate plans, collaborate, and have fun building cool shit. Also, is my dog invited?

Jac

Head of Partnerships

While Chicago born and raised, I’ve globe-trotted to live in many incredible places like Delhi, NYC and Sweden. For some time now, my family and I call the Bay Area home. With a background in media sales and digital marketing, I’ve enjoyed building partnerships and teams within large corporations and small start-ups. Passionate about investing and technology, I love that the possibilities blockchain technology and web3 affords people to become financially free and independent are endless - I’m excited to help create this future for my own little babe and others like her everywhere!

Dejenna

Head of Marketing

I was born in NYC and grew up in New Jersey, where I currently reside. I have spent my career in marketing and advertising, and have always had outside interests in art and tech. I got into NFTs in late 2021, and once I found Crypto Chicks, I felt instantly connected to the community and their mission of empowering women in web3. I knew I needed to be a part of this project in a larger capacity one day, and I am so happy this has come true. Outside of work and web3, I am passionate about drawing, painting, figure skating, and trying new restaurants.

Joana

Creative Director

I was born, raised and now back again living in the beautiful city of Porto, Portugal. Founded my first impact startup at the age of 24 that took me from being a young architect to a globally recognized change maker in the fields of art, tech and ethics. Over the past few years, my enthusiasm has been directed towards the decentralized world of crypto and blockchain and so, you can easily find me mentoring, celebrating and supporting the women who are building the Web3 scene on their own terms. I am on a lifelong learning journey of self-consciousness, astrology related topics and committed to being happier, fulfilled and making the world a better place everyday.

Kira

Affiliate Advisor

A true California girl, I’ve spent the majority of my life thus far in the sunshine state, and the past decade working in PR and influencer relations. I’ve since joined a Private Equity firm with a value-adding thesis that invests in consumer brands, where I serve in a hybrid role across our investment team and operations. My passion is web3 and in my free time, I can be found onboarding friends and family into the space through NFTs. Crypto Chicks spoke to me as the first major investment I made in the category, and to this day, that CC is my pfp across channels.

Plunk

Head of Systems

I’m a digital nomad, currently enjoying Hawaiian life. My background is in investment management and IT. I first got into crypto in 2016 and discovered NFTs in early 2021. I quickly fell down the NFT rabbit hole after falling in love with the community aspect of the space. When I’m not studying defi and web3, I love getting outside, spending time in nature, and water sports.
