What makes you the best person for your role?
After a decade in the publishing industry, I led a startup during the height of the first Internet boom. Ever since, I’ve devoted my career to supporting the innovation economy. I spent my first two years at IW on the investment team, the next two years on the entrepreneurial services team, and the past 15+ years developing and building new programs for IW, raising capital, and fostering key relationships.
What is your favorite thing about working with startups?
They bring infectious energy and passion to their work every day.
What do you love about living and working in Pittsburgh?
Definitely the Pittsburgh accent!
Where can we find you outside of work?
Mountain biking between April and November, snowboarding between December and March.
