The iFlipd Team

Kati Radziwon

CEO - Founder

For Kati the decision to launch iFlipd was simple: she loves books, but couldn’t find good venues in which to explore and share them online. A former tech executive with a luxury retailer, Kati has also built her own successful photography business in Portland, Oregon. Her secret to running a startup while raising three boys? She can text with her toes.

As founder of One Foot, a Brooklyn-based production company specializing in television and live events (and a former birthday-party magician) he brings a mix of tech and theatrical skills to the iFlipd interface. But don’t ask him why he owns an ambulance.

Lizzie Ahern

Customer Service / Marketing

The new kid on the block is Lizzie Ahern, but she’s no amateur when it comes to providing quality customer service at iFlipd. As a recent grad, Lizzie knows the struggles of college which is why she is devoted to making books more convenient and affordable to students everywhere. When she’s not assisting iFlipd customers, Lizzie is coaching volleyball, on a hike, or binge watching shows on Netflix.
