Leadership Team


Allison Robinson

| Founder & Chief Executive Officer

Allison is the founder and chief executive officer of The Mom Project. She drives the company’s vision and strategy in redefining the path to professional success for women. Allison has spent eight years with Procter and Gamble managing enterprise relationships and building consumer-led market strategies. In her most recent role on the Pampers brand, Allison was able to delve deep into the minds and hearts of millennial moms to witness the change technology was having on the way women not only interact, but approach work.

After welcoming her first child Asher in 2015, Allison recognized the tremendous opportunity to create a talent marketplace to bridge the gap between employers looking for top talent and the millions of educated and professionally accomplished mothers across the country looking for meaningful work.


Arun Umapathy

| Chief Technology Officer

Arun Umapathy ensures that all of The Mom Project technology is running smoothly, efficiently and reliably. A Hoosier, Arun, has run many of his own start ups that scale the tech and finance world. He brings depth and knowledgeable experience to The Mom Project bridging the technological demands with the business needs of The Mom Project. The prospect of being a part of this company and this team was too good an opportunity to pass up!


Denise Chase

| Chief Community Officer

Denise is devoted to building and fostering our Mom Community - ultimately empowering women across the country to redefine their careers. Supporting moms has always been an integral part of her career- from growing the Pampers business at Procter & Gamble, to marketing the launch of a world class maternity hospital in Texas and most recently providing consumers (mostly moms) with personalized savings from Catalina. Now, she’s channeling her passion to change the way work is structured – determined to make it easier for more talented women (and one day her daughter) to stay active in the workforce.


Courtney Hyde

| Vice President of Sales

Courtney thrives on consulting her clients to help them find world-class talent. While most of her career has been in tech sales, her most recent role at LinkedIn Talent Solutions has impacted how she works with executive teams to attract and engage top candidates. She is passionate about the movement that is the The Mom Project – Allowing women to value their families as well as their careers.

When she isn’t cultivating relationships with her clients, you can find her in dancing in the kitchen with her toddler and husband (definitely not cooking).


Valeria Bailey

| General Counsel

Valeria provides The Mom Project leadership team with day-to-day and strategic legal support and guidance. Valeria brings more than 20 years of legal experience—both in law firms and in corporations—most recently having served as general counsel of The Wickford Group and Rand McNally. Valeria was immediately intrigued upon hearing about The Mom Project’s idea to leverage technology to connect forward thinking businesses and highly experienced and educated women through a digital platform. Being a professional mom of two middle school children herself, the positive message of The Mom Project resonated with Valeria personally.


Sherri Nelson

| Vice President of Strategic Partnerships

Sherri leads strategic partnerships with universities, professional affiliations and research institutes for The Mom Project. A graduate of The Wharton School of Business, Sherri began her career in International Banking at Bankers Trust Company in New York City. After leaving banking to start a family, Sherri became heavily involved with nonprofits and has served as a trustee on several boards of national organizations. Her variety of experiences have enabled her to connect with the business community to understand how corporations are adjusting their human resource strategies to better adapt to changing dynamics within the workforce, particularly as they relate to professional women.
