Director, Vision at The Org


As Director of The Org's Vision product I am responsible for the execution of all commercial activities related to Vision. Vision is The Org's first data product built off our expansive org chart database and is built for private investors.

But that is only where it begins... stay tuned.

Previously, I was a Senior Research Associate at Korn Ferry covering the Biotechnology sector. In this role I actively tracked trends in talent and organizational design within the high-science community, serving top-tier venture clients.

I received my B.S. in Biology, with a double minor in Political Theory and Classics from Union College.

Qualities I value:

Trust on a personal and professional level, Being action oriented, respect, open-mindedness, humility, awareness

Some things outside of work that I love include my rescue dog, Chuck, music (60s & 70s), cooking, life sciences

Personal Q&A

  • What do people misunderstand about you?

    I can come off as a very confident, leading voice in meetings. This is often misunderstood as "my way or the highway". When it is meant more to challenge the people I work with, if you are confident I am wrong I would hope and expect to be challenged.
