20+ years as a strategy and transaction services professional, with significant experience in capital raising, M&A, and private equity transactions.
Being the daughter of a serial entrepreneur who defined his success in stakeholder return inspired me to focus on increasing access to capital for double and triple-bottom line organizations.

My motivation to do the work we do is to contribute, in whatever way I can, to building a more inclusive and sustainable global economy. The bottom line is that I want to live in a world where there is greater economic and social equity and participation. Over the years, I have learned that individuals and small businesses often need capital and professional support, not just one or the other. To that end, I devote my professional energies to Enclude.
