Born in Memphis, TN, raised in a traditional nuclear family of four, and the oldest of two kids.
Attended an all-girls private school
, and I graduated with a B.A. from Wellesley College
in MA (yes...I spent 8 years at all-female institutions).
Majored in Sociology and Economics, became president of my sorority, and launched a couple of businesses / charity organizations while on campus.
5+ years work experience in finance / investment banking (Media, Film Finance, FIG, DCM) and also co-founded a B2B marketplace startup for buying and selling film rights.
Moved back home for 3 years to Memphis, TN after my mom developed breast cancer. I'm living in CA for the second time in my life....this time SF.
(My geographical roadmap looks something like this: MEM--> BOS-->NYC-->LA-->MEM-->SF)
