Moonlit - Mikaela interviews Stephanie Kim

Moonlit Skincare CEO Stephanie Kim and Mikaela Kiner have a conversation about thriving as an entrepreneur.

Stephanie Kim founded Moonlit Skincare along with her best friend. After eighteen months of hard work, they landed their products in Nordstrom and Urban Outfitters holiday packs. Moonlit was already focused on sleep wellness when the pandemic hit. With people feeling more stress and not getting restful sleep, their products are more relevant than ever. When major retailers ran out of hand sanitizer, Moonlit quickly contacted its partners and produced shareable packs of travel sized sanitizer. Stephanie thought she would spend her career in corporate beauty, but is now thriving as an entrepreneur.

Mikaela is a Founder/CEO and executive coach. In 2015, she founded Reverb, to help companies create healthy, inclusive cultures that scale. Last year, Reverb was named as the second fastest growing company in the state by PSBJ. Before Reverb, Mikaela held HR leadership roles at several Northwest companies. She enjoys being part of the Seattle startup community, where she gets to work with mission driven leaders. Her book Female Firebrands: Stories and Techniques to Ignite Change, Take Control, and Succeed in the Workplace was released in January 2020.
