Co-CEO & Managing Partner
Get to know me in three:
- What makes LCW special?
- In short – the people at LCW are what make this a special organization. I left financial services to find one remarkable company where I could apply my skillsets of building organizations and scaling impact to create equity and opportunity for the most people possible. I was drawn to LCW because our team is comprised of industry-leading subject matter experts that back up their knowledge with an authentic passion to truly make an impact and that sets LCW apart.
- The values that influence me:
- Equity is at the heart of all I do and who I am. Creating equitable environments that allow others to develop their skills sets is a mission that I have lived out by bringing financial literacy programs to high school girls in Chicago and by sitting on the board of Genesys Works. I continue to live out this value as Managing Partner at LCW.
- My diversity story:
- I was born during my family’s immigration to the United States as refugees and did not speak English until I was five years old. I grew up in Chicago alongside friends from all over the world, experiencing their cultures and values. This experience shapes me both personally and professionally and is the reason that I have made it my mission to educate large organizations on the importance of supporting cultural awareness and DEI initiatives.
