Colette Courtion has spent more than 12 years working in beauty and with medical aesthetic technologies. However, it was her personal experience of becoming a mother that led her to start Joylux, a menopausal health platform that provides home-use solutions for women. She was recently named by Inc Magazine to their prestigious Top 100 Female Founders list. Prior to founding Joylux, Colette was CEO of JeNu, the first home-use anti-aging device using ultrasound technology. Prior to JeNu, Colette launched Calidora Skin Clinics, a leading anti-aging chain of skin clinics in the NW. Colette began her career in finance at PepsiCo and Maveron (a Seattle venture capital firm) before heading to Starbucks. As a marketing executive for Starbucks, she was responsible for creating and patenting the Duetto Card, named by Business Week as 2003’s Best Product of the Year, while running the largest and most successful retail store value card and loyalty program in the world, the Starbucks Card. She earned a BA in economics from the University of Washington and an MBA from the Graziadio School of Business and Management at Pepperdine University.
