Major & School:
Business Finance at
San Diego State University

Start Date:
September 2020


I graduated from San Diego State University in 2021 with a degree in Finance and a minor in Industrial/Organizational Psychology. I spent a lot of time at the fund focusing on insurtech companies as well as consumer products. I also spent time on various projects to help our current portfolio companies grow and succeed. I am now at Silicon Valley Bank as a part of their Associate Development Program up in Palo Alto. I believe UGF really prepared me for this position and has opened up unimaginable doors. The knowledge I gained from this program is unmatched and very helpful for pursuing a career in VC.
