I am the Fund & Marketing Coordinator for PTV Healthcare Capital where I work with a remarkable team driven to enable healthcare innovation. Having successfully re-branded the firm in 2013, I have shaped our user experience through graphic design, dynamic content creation, event production and thoughtful communications. I enjoy flexing my engineering muscles implementing our IT network, data rooms and CRM tools.

My career journey began at WholeFoods, where I learned empowered employees delivered a better experience for the customer. I also learned that I wasn’t a good vegan. Cheese is WAY too good to give up!

After relocating to Chicago, I worked as Education Coordinator for Aveda Services Great Lakes. By using education as a tool for brand development, I witnessed firsthand the power of making people partners in delivering a company’s mission. My appreciation for social responsibility grew tremendously here. Mother Earth deserves our utmost respect and care.

My passion in photography has allowed me to find beauty in the world around me. I love exploring Austin just before dawn to capture the awakening energy of a new day. Music provides the beat to my never-ending march. My vast collection of LPs is nearly 600 strong, and I am always scouting for more.

My guilty pleasure is Laineygossip.com. Part gossip column, part celebrity brand analysis, Elaine “Lainey” Liu questions gender biases, ageism and racial stereotypes that run rampant in Hollywood and the music industry. I highly recommend checking out her Ted Talk on the sociological function of gossip across history.

As a mother of two incredibly curious and insightful children, I’ve learned that honesty is truly the best policy. When in doubt, go to Google and find the answers. As a wife to a dedicated husband and amazing father, I have found my biggest cheerleader and will be forever grateful for his friendship and support.
