Anke Huiskes Director Sales & Trade Marketing Willow

Anke Huiskes has a deep passion for how new technology can improve people’s lives, especially around women’s health. She began her career in the Netherlands by starting her first company at age 22 and sold it after two years to join Procter & Gamble to learn all the ins and outs of sales and marketing in a retail environment. Five years ago, she moved to San Francisco to say goodbye to the corporate life and join some (early stage) startups. She currently works at Willow, a platform of products to improve women’s health, where she is leading the sales and trade marketing. Anke has a Masters Degree (Cum Laude) and lives with her husband and 2-year-old son in San Francisco.


Willow is a platform for products that help improve the lives and health of women. We are a mission-driven team of experienced inventors, young mothers, and fathers dedicated to making a difference in women’s lives.

The Willow® Wearable Breast Pump is the first solution in our platform. Moms who pump told us that they often need to press pause on life while they pump and that their dream pump would be truly mobile and unplugged from the wall. We set out to create a better solution and we did not stop innovating until we got there. Willow is a complete re-imagining of the breast pump - it is the only all-in-one breast pump that fits in a bra. Willow is mobile, discreet and gives moms their hands back. Willow cuts the cords and banishes dangling baby bottles so busy multi-tasking moms can pump wherever the day takes them. Willow is a whole new pumping experience and it is going to change the game for women everywhere.
