Why Venture Capital?
I have always been drawn to the energy and passion individuals bring to the start-up culture. Venture capital lends the opportunity for growth and development within these new companies while allowing them to continue to be creators and innovators. It is extremely rewarding to work in a company that is not only continually adapting to the current trends of the business landscape, but also providing long-term destinations for early-stage companies.
Prior to Costanoa, I worked in the hospitality industry within the field of hotels and resorts including: Pebble Beach Resorts as an on-course food and beverages manager, and Rosewood Hotels as a sales and marketing coordinator.
B.S. in Hospitality Management with an emphasis in Event Planning from San Jose State University
Outside of Work
I am extremely active and love the outdoors. I enjoy cycling, running, lifting, hiking, walking my two dogs and playing tennis on the weekends. One of my greatest passions is cooking with my fiancé/sous-chef- homemade pasta is on heavy rotation.
