Getting it wrong has always meant I was one step closer to getting it right”. Always valuing experiences and never limited by a title, Whitney spent her career working across industries from small business and fitness to law and private equity. Fueled by her first passion, customer service and entrepreneurship, Whitney launched her business, Punchlist, in 2008--an errand-running service just barely ahead of its time. In 2011, she joined YETI Coolers as the right-hand-woman to the CEO/Founder. As the company ballooned to $450 million, Whitney recognized the impact rapid growth was having on the culture and as the leader of the Culture Advisory Board she discovered a second passion, company culture and employee experience. It was here that she finally honed in on what she loved doing most: helping others become their best selves! An entrepreneur at heart, a generalist by trade, and a caregiver by skill, Whitney joined Blue Sky Partners so that she can use her unique perspective and diverse experience to help business owners in any industry solve problems and turn their vision into reality.
