About Me

I am a second-year MBA student at the University of Notre Dame. I am seeking a full-time opportunity in the private equity industry. During this academic year, I have the opportunity to work as an associate with the IrishAngels which is an angel investor group of Notre Dame alumni. I complete the pre-screening and due diligence on deals before they were presented to the group.

Last summer, I was a summer associate at Blackford Capital. Blackford is private investment firm that acquires, manages, and grows middle-market manufacturing, distribution, and service companies. I was responsible for evaluating potential portfolio company or add-on acquisitions, strategic planning to improve existing platform companies, sourcing new deals, and preparing presenations for prospective investors and Board of Directors meetings.

Additionally, I volunteer with the local community center to help middle school and high school kids on their entrepreneurial ideas. I co-chair the admissions committee and I am a corporate ambassador for the MBA program.
