As an associate on the investment team at Castanea, I spend my time analyzing new investment opportunities for the firm and working on projects to support our portfolio companies. I work with the teams at Yasso and Simms Fishing Products.

Prior to joining Castanea, I worked as an investment banking analyst at Lazard in the middle market group, advising industrial, education, consumer, and retail clients. I graduated from the University of Iowa in 2015 with a B.B.A. in Finance and a B.A. in Spanish. In my free time, I’m trying to sneak out to the golf course, planning my next international trip, or cheering on my Hawkeyes.


Yasso is a brand of frozen Greek yogurt desserts that is available in all major grocery and club stores within the United States.
