I went to Baylor University where I attained degrees in both Marketing & Entrepreneurship. I began my career in the Recruiting Department of Kirkland & Ellis where learned all aspects of the recruiting process from the initial interview to planning a 10-week program for our summer associates. I switched to the Business Development Department which focused more on our client base. I planned a multitude of events as well as assisted in providing collateral to our attorneys in an effort to grow our cliental. I loved many aspects of my role but I began to seek opportunities at companies where there was an alignment with mission, values and culture. During my job search, I was connected to the recruiter of Golden Section. The more I learned about Golden Section’s mission and environment, the more confident that I became that this would be a great fit for me. Speaking with Katie Gregory and Kristen Phillips further affirmed this as they spoke to the incredible people, fast paced environment and many opportunities for growth at Golden Section all with the purpose of helping our founders achieve a meaningful exit.

What is one thing people should know about you? I have am obsessed (or addicted?) to Goldfish.

What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you? I have never been to the state of Montana.

What are you most passionate about professionally? I am passionate about continued opportunities to grow and learn. I believe that all work environments should be conducive to their employees growth and development. We should never stop looking for opportunities to advance our knowledge and grow our skill sets.

What are you most passionate about personally? I am passionate about helping people by investing time in building relationships with them. I believe that the most affective way to help someone (whether that is personally, spiritually or professionally – which I believe all are intertwined) is to do life with them. The people who have had the biggest impact in my life aren’t people who said something profound, but rather the people who took time out of their lives getting to know me and caring for me.

What is your favorite place to travel to and why? Cinque Terre in Italy is my favorite place to travel. It is a chain of 5 towns that you can hike between along the coast. It is has both mountains and beach – double whammy!!

What is your favorite way to pursue balance in your life? Being active (pickle ball!!) and spending time with friends and family.
