I am motivated to support Cornell Botanic Gardens because it provides a unique learning experience, while being submersed in the natural world.  The organization is valuable to the greater Ithaca area for its iconic geography and ability to unite the community through cultural exploration and engaging events.”


I first became connected with Cornell Botanic Gardens as a sophomore at Cornell, when I interned in marketing and communications. I had such a great experience learning about the public garden and meeting wonderful people that I strongly want to continue to work with the organization and support its mission.

After graduating in 2019, I started working for Capital One’s Commercial Bank. In my current role with the Debt Funds Team, I focus on structured debt financing for institutional commercial real estate clients. I have also held roles with Capital One’s REIT Finance Group and Criticized Asset Group.
