Nicole Kohansamad is a Southern California native- originally from Santa Barbara and moved to LA over 10 years ago to attend USC. After working in management consulting for several years, she transitioned to the digital media world with her role in business operations at Fullscreen. There, her excitement about the business side of media and streaming grew as she managed projects across partnerships, subscriber acquisition, and programming to help Fullscreen launch its own SVOD service.
After continuing her career in ops/strategy at Edmunds, an automotive tech company, she made the pivot back to media by joining Roku’s Premium Subscriptions team. In her current role, Nicole gets to lean into that cross-functional nature once again to help The Roku Channel scale its SVOD business. In her free time, you can find Nicole at the beach, practicing or teaching Pilates, or playing with her 2 year old niece and nephew!
