I've spent the majority of my career in strategy and operations, first as a management consultant and then at Equinox Fitness Clubs, where I held various strategy roles and eventually served as the company's Chief of Staff. I was interested in transitioning to the startup world, so in September 2023 I joined Planet 9 Studio, a venture studio dedicated to building startups that improve the lives of neurodiverse kids and teens. I serve as their VP & Head of Venture Operations, where I lead various functions including people, operations, finance, IT, and legal. As I transition to such a different role than my previous ones, I'm interested in building a diverse network of peers who I can connect with and learn from. I was aware of the Chief of Staff network from my previous role, so instantly thought of Biz Ops Network as a good place to start.
