Age: 33

Title: Founder, CEO of Bracket Dating

Married/Single: Single. So single that I founded my own dating app to find a date.

Kids: Proud mother of one very hairy, slightly stalky, four-legged baby boy. A French bulldog named Napoleon.

City you live in: Desert nomad

My day is like…

handing a toddler an open container of glitter. Its unpredictable, messy, fabulous and sparkly all at the same time.

I was born…

to be wild, but only until about 9:30ish.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is that we have the common sense not to go on Daylight Savings time. #locktheclock

I’m listening to…

a business-related audio book, I try to fit one in every week. The Virgin Way by Richard Branson is one of my favorites. I find audio books motivate me more than music although some of life’s greatest questions have come to us from music, “What you gon’ do with all that junk? All that junk inside your trunk?” Hmmmmm, good question.

My family…

is my support system and rock. They give me the encouragement I need when I am down and they are also not afraid to take me down a few notches if I ever get too full of myself.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Richard Branson. He’s just cool, has great vibes and an awesome book. I love that he takes big risks and always manages to incorporate fun.

One thing I cannot live without…

wine. When I combine wine and dinner does it makes me a “winner?”

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

older. I wanted to get a job, make money and move into my own place so I could live independently.

I’m inspired by…

all entrepreneurs who go all in on a goal, dream, vision or passion. I am also inspired by the person who thought grating cheese was too hard and invented pre-shredded cheese. I haven’t bought a block of cheese in years.

The one person who motivates me is…

the single girl with ambition. I wake up every morning inspired by those ladies knowing that my dating app might help one find a fabulous partner to share her gifts with.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

eliminate the hate. Just imagine where we could be as a global community if all the effort we put into hate, fighting and war was re-directed into innovation and technological advances.

The perfect day would be…

today. Today is one more day that I get to spend on this little speck of dirt that is zooming around the universe. Nobody really knows what it means, how it ends or why we are here, but that’s the beauty of it: enjoy the now.

My first job was…

Old Navy. I can still fold a shirt better and faster than anyone I know.

My favorite escape…

is a long hike through the desert, followed by dessert and of course a glass of wine.

My life…

is the only one I will ever have, so I try to make the most of it.

I’m currently working on… compiling all my dating stories from the last 6 years. Dating is hard and I want everyone to know that we all suffer through the awkward, uncomfortable and embarrassing moments. You are not alone.

Always…

Go for it and try.* You will never regret having tried. You might stumble, you might fall, but its going to be a lot less painful than living with regret and “what ifs?”

*Don’t try meth, you will probably regret that.

Never…

compromise your integrity.

Favorite Quote…

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.” – Henry Ford

Biggest Dream…

is to inspire others to take big risks, chase down your goals and attempt the impossible. You never know what you are capable of until you try.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

pruney fingers. You know, when the tips of your fingers turn into little wet half raisins. My friends find it hilarious to chase me around with their mutant fingers after a day at the pool or river. Just, ew.

More about Whitney…

Bracket was founded by seasoned entrepreneur Whitney Linscott. After being single for 6 years and exploring every dating app known to mankind she was frustrated and determined to develop a better dating app. She wanted to make one that was not only fun to use, but very effective in making a meaningful match.

Bracket’s goal is to make you always feel like a winner. Whether you’ve been chosen as a winner for another user’s bracket, or you get a chat back from your own bracket winner of the day, it feels great knowing impersonal, unconscious swiping was not involved.

Bracket is currently looking for college brand ambassadors to further the app’s mission on college campuses. Students will be able to learn firsthand marketing experience by finding exciting ways to implement a growth strategy for downloads at select schools.
