What’s new?
For years, my primary focus was on making the best investments as a deal professional. As the founder of Kinzie Capital Partners, I took on new initiatives almost every day – fundraising, recruiting, and operations of the fund management, just to name a few. Of all these new responsibilities, I’m most proud of building a solid investment team. With closing our first fund and our first fund investment completed in the back half 2019, I am confident in this team’s ability to execute and look forward to the progress we will make in 2020.

How are you advancing the state of women?
I am actively involved with the Private Equity Women’s Investor Network and the Women’s Association of Venture and Equity, organizations that provide more resources to women in investment careers. Elevating successful female leaders in the public eye can have a powerful impact on both women and men, as we continue to work towards gender equality. I strive to be engaged and be a visible role model to help deliver the message that women can and do succeed in this industry.
