Her top goal is to help develop and enhance new and existing features that will delight Flea members by improving their fantasy sports experience.

Company History

Fleaflicker rose in popularity during the '05 NFL season, when many large fantasy sports sites suffered major outages and forced fans to look elsewhere. They turned to Fleaflicker and discovered features and options that were not available on the larger sites.

Since then, Fleaflicker has grown steadily and is now home to hundreds of thousands of loyal fantasy players from around the world.
