About This Event

Sleep is a vital, often neglected, component of every person's overall health and well-being. Sleep is important because it enables the body to repair and be fit and ready for another day. Getting adequate rest may also help prevent excess weight gain, heart disease, and increased illness duration. Lack of sleep can lead to a higher risk of accidents and productivity losses. Sleep tracking can improve your sleep, providing you with a wealth of data such as how much time you've spent in each stage of sleep. But how do you use this data wisely?

Join experts as they share about Data-Driven approach to sleep during this webinar.

Senior Director, Sleep Experience & Technology, Tuft & Needle

I'm the Sr. Director Sleep Experience & Technology for Tuft & Needle (T&N) and the resident sleep expert for Serta Simmons Bedding (SSB), which includes the Serta, Beautyrest, Simmons and Tuft & Needle portfolio of brands. I joined SSB in 2016 as part of the Advanced Technologies team and in 2020 transitioned to the T&N direct to consumer business.

In my role, I advocate and educate about the importance of sleep as part of a self care and wellness regimen. I help connect the dots between sleep science, product development and the habit changes required to achieve transformative rest.

I'm a self-proclaimed sleep nerd and have transformed my bedroom into a dedicated recovery room. The only technology allowed? Those items that promote better sleep. No alarm required. Ever. I wake up every morning, refreshed and ready to take on the day.

Head of Product and Design, Beddr

Entrepreneurial, mission driven product leader with expertise in launching products 0-1 and advancing products with millions of users. I get big things done with nimble strategy, deep collaboration, versatile execution and by building highly motivated teams. I love products that make it easy, intuitive and enjoyable for users to thrive with rich insights, community, tools and services. I’ve done this across the span of health and wellness e.g., precision sleep care and behavioral health with wearables (Beddr), full-spectrum personalized virtual care with content, community, a telehealth market place and AI based guidance (HealthTap), and rural telehealth for unprecedented care in markets lacking doctors and labs (ITT). As an erstwhile strategy consultant and software engineer I’m comfortable with ambiguity, complexity and many verticals. Behavior change, product led growth, and paradigm changing business models are of great interest to me.
