Hi everyone!I’m the Chief Operating Officer at LTSE. We are a mission-based, fintech startup that supports companies at every stage to operate with more of a long-term focus. Our work ranges from enterprise SaaS to the imminent launch of Long-Term Stock Exchange, the newest SEC-approved stock exchange in the United States. I joined LTSE as Chief of Staff and one of the first five employees. Over my four-year tenure, I have taken on roles as Head of Finance and Operations and VP Operations. I have helped close our Series A and Series B financings and scale our team. In my current role as COO, I manage our executives and lead the cross-functional team that is responsible for finance, legal, people ops/HR, talent, administration, and culture. I started my career in the family office world, supporting a serial entrepreneur in running and investing in a number of businesses. That experience exposed me to different industries and teams and informed my perspective as an operator. I have a BA in Foreign Affairs from the University of Virginia and live in Brooklyn, NY, with my partner Ryan.Ask me anything about the role of Chief of Staff or COO at a startup, my tricks for being successful at an early stage startup, raising venture capital, working in fintech, or any of my personal hobbies--well being, mindfulness, fitness/movement, travel and personal finance.Lastly, we are actively hiring right now at LTSE, so if you are interested in learning about new opportunities please check out our open roles.
