Cara is working to bring happy hour to more homes. She serves as Chief Financial Officer of Speakeasy Co., a leading e-commerce and fulfillment platform that empowers alcohol brands to own their destiny by enabling them to sell directly to consumers without disrupting the three-tier system.

I strive to make sure my team, friends, and colleagues know I'm here to listen, provide support, and be an advocate.”
