I am a partner in the firm’s Early Stage & Emerging Companies practice group. I focus my practice on corporate law and transactions, including venture investment financing transactions, change of control transactions, business formation, contract preparation and review, and general corporate governance matters. I assist emerging companies with preferred equity investment transactions, convertible debt financing transactions, bridge loans, commercial contract preparation, governance and compliance issues, and other business needs.
I work with startup and early stage companies in a variety of industries including biotech and health care, HR tech, consumer marketing, and business products and services. I have experience in various aspects of acquisitions and sales, including negotiation and preparation of transaction documents, due diligence and disclosure.
I am on the board of directors of Aviatra Accelerators, a nonprofit organization that provides mentoring and educational programming for female-led early stage companies, helping these entrepreneurs start and grow their businesses.
I serve as a mentor for Queen City Angels’ Morning Mentoring program, which provides guidance to entrepreneurs launching startup companies. I also work with Rev1 Ventures’ Customer Learning Lab in Columbus, mentoring founders of emerging companies who are seeking capital for their businesses and operational training.
I enjoy experiencing the growing startup and small business ecosystem in Cincinnati and exploring new restaurants, parks and activities with my husband and two young sons.
