(617) 630-2449

As an associate on the investment team at Castanea, I spend my time evaluating new opportunities and supporting our partners in identifying innovative brands and trends that are shaping the consumer world today.

I also work directly with our portfolio companies, Tatcha, Donald Pliner, and MacKenzie-Childs.

Prior to joining Castanea, I worked at Credit Suisse in Investment Banking covering consumer and retail clients. I am a graduate of Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business, where I was a proud captain of its varsity swimming team. In my free time, you’ll find me embracing my competitive side at a Flywheel class or planning my next travel adventure.


Tatcha’s luxury skincare products are inspired by Japanese beauty rituals.
