Product Launch Educator

A native of Brooklyn, NY, Ayana is a proud first-generation American, strategist, and serial entrepreneur who learned how to make nothing into something from an early age. She used her English degree from Dartmouth College to launch her career at Booz Allen Hamilton where she fiercely compelled stakeholders and specialized talent alike. Most recently at Google, Ayana drove go-to-market strategies for cloud technologies and is now the Chief Product Officer of publishing and art house, Bond & Grace. As founder of her launch studio Florâcity, Ayana helps talented people live lives they’ve only imagined. Through it all, she keeps contributing to others at the center of her leadership and personal mission–releasing potential, encouraging excellence, and sharing in continuous learning. When Ayana isn’t mentoring high school students or bringing novel products to market, you can find her running home for a quick fix of NYC, planning her next travel adventure, or bravely altering a recipe.
