About Me

I am a young professional with a range of Strategy and Operations experience across multiple sectors (public, private, not-for-profit, and social enterprise), and a variety of industries in developed, emerging and frontier markets. I have lived and worked across four continents and am passionate about advising, revitalizing, operating and investing in organizations to help them achieve their full potential, and to create value for their stakeholders as well as for society. A “giver” by nature, I live to help others succeed, whether that is in business, society or life. I received my A.B. in International Political Economy from the Williams School of Commerce, Economics & Policy at Washington and Lee University, where I also served as captain of the wrestling team and received NCAA Academic-All American honors. I also completed an interdisciplinary M.A. in International Business and Diplomacy (M.I.B.D.) at New York University, where I studied at the Stern School of Business.
