What makes Miki tick?

"I've always loved questioning the status quo and society's approach to things. Is there a better, more efficient, more environmentally friendly, more design considered, more artful way to do them?  I've always been fascinated with the process of discovery, invention and rapid improvements and my favorite saying is "iteration is perfection".  I feel a great sense of pride in having built successful companies that have tackled taboos head on, are truly changing culture and improving the lives of millions of people around the world. I've also learned a great deal of lessons (oh, have I ever) in the process of building these businesses and I look forward to sharing them as I go." 



I am the Co-Founder / Chief Inventor-er of THINX: the period-proof underwear company that’s disrupting the $15 billion feminine-hygiene market. THINX was named Fast Company’s World’s Most Innovative Companies of 2017 + one of Time Magazine’s 25 Best New Inventions of 2015. In its first giveback partnership, THINX helped over 60,000 girls in Uganda return to school. But that wasn't enough. So, 2017 marks the launch of the THINX Foundation (, which will teach its *very own* newly-piloted health and entrepreneurship curriculum to girls around the world.

Miki pees.

~Actually~ 1 in 3 ladies pee a lil’ when they laugh, jump, sneeze, or make sweet sweet lurve. So I co-created a gorgeous pee-proof underwear called ICON to help women stay their MOST unapologetic selves. For every pair sold, money goes to the Fistula Foundation to provide care for women with obstetric fistula in developing countries.


Miki poops.

My newest brand TUSHY upgrades the American bathroom experience with ~sleek~ installable bidets. Each purchase helps Samagra combat the global sanitation crisis affecting 40% of the world.

Miki writes. 

Book numero uno, DO COOL SH*T, hit #1 on Amazon Bestseller List in Entrepreneurship. Book numero dos, Title TBD, will grace shelves in 2018.

Miki eats.

I love eating so I founded the acclaimed farm-to-table gluten-free pizza concept WILD. The restaurant rang in its 12-year anniversary in 2017 (ding)! We're opening our fourth location soon! 

In sum...

I love doing. I'm also proudly an identical twin and Irish triplet; the daughter of a Japanese mom and an Indian dad; an OG French-Canadian; a Wall Street dropout; a former professional soccer player; a Cornell grad... and an expecting mama. ;-)
