Having been too often sleep deprived and dropping off exercise and diet regimens, Julia's goal is to make people happier and healthier as the CEO of lark technologies. Named Top 10 Most Innovative CE Companies in the World by Fast Company, lark is a mobile and wireless technology company that uses behavior change to personally coach people to feel great.
A serial entrepreneur, she has focused on growing early-stage startups in the consumer products and cleantech space. Prior to lark, she ran global startup incubator Clean Tech Open, her own green buildings startup, and worked in China to build consumer electronics with D.light Design.
She received her master’s and bachelor’s degrees at Stanford University and half a MBA from the MIT Sloan (a dropout, but they were kind enough to make lark a casestudy). She was an entrepreneur in residence at Stanford’s StartX incubator, and named Top Woman Entrepreneur Under 40 by Marie Claire Magazine.
