I'm fortunate to work with many of the most disruptive early- and growth-stage Consumer/Enterprise companies throughout SF/Silicon Valley. Accelerator is the early-stage technology group for Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) where we focus on banking, debt financing and making impactful connections for entrepreneurs and their startups. Growth is the growth-stage technology group for SVB where we scale with entrepreneurs and their companies through banking, debt financing and making impactful connections. Leading a team focusing on both Accelerator and Growth serves as a platform for us to be thoughtful long-term partners to entrepreneurs, as their fast-growing startup scales into a growth company. From our 30+ years, we understand that relationship continuity is paramount.
Recently, I was also fortunate to work with a number of disruptive Fintech startups throughout SF/Silicon Valley, and advised on SVB's payments strategy and solutions. Previously, I was a part of SVB's Private Equity Services group for over five years where I was the banker for a number of venture capital and private equity firms, including: a16z, Marlin Equity Partners, Redpoint Ventures, Shasta Ventures, Sequoia Capital and Vector Capital. In that role, I also led the group’s expansion into and efforts in Southern California. In 2003, I started at SVB in our asset-based lending group where I helped early and growth stage technology companies leverage their A/R for working capital.
In 2003, I earned a B.Sc. in Finance and Economics from Santa Clara University.
