I started my career at Goldman Sachs in leveraged finance, and was fortunate to have a role that involved working closely with both management teams and cross-functionally within GS. Those early collaborations taught me that investing is a fundamentally human activity — one that requires authenticity and a creative approach to problem solving.
From there I moved to the operations side with Resy, a restaurant technology start-up, to get more hands-on experience in the tech ecosystem and in a sector I am passionate about — food and restaurants. That experience led me to Stanford for an MBA and a more nuanced understanding of how tech and funding can intersect and be a force for good in the world. Studying in Silicon Valley also reinforced the importance of building an ecosystem — even the most brilliant entrepreneurs require community and partnership. I was drawn to General Catalyst’s commitment to building enduring enterprises through responsible innovation, so I was delighted to join the firm and become part of a mission-driven team.
Outside of work, I’m running in New York City, cheering on the Duke Blue Devils, or scrolling through Resy to book my next dinner reservation. During the pandemic, I trained as a crisis counselor to help people regain their balance during a time of extraordinary uncertainty.
