As the Founder/CEO of Lucas Point Ventures my focus is supporting diverse management teams. I serve as a Board Member/Advisor to a number of early stage companies and am also an Advisor/Mentor to several groups including Astia, 37 Angels, Women's StartupLab, the Monarq Incubator and Chicago based techweek. In 2017 I was invited to join the Cartier Women's Initiative Awards global jury.
In the not for profit space I am proud to sit on the Boards of the Center for Talent Innovation and International House, New York.
At Columbia University, School of International and Public Affairs I am an Adjunct Professor.
Previously I was a Managing Director at Bank of America Merrill Lynch and head of Global Macro Research leading a team of 175 professionals in 12 countries. I have 25 years of global investing and management experience and, with the help of many great colleagues, was fortunate to be a top ranked sell side investment analyst in all of the US, Asia and UK.
