We help businesses grow into market leaders through our in-house operations team and by increasing innovation and efficiency behind the scenes.

Our world is becoming increasingly reliant on software. Turn/River has a differentiated approach to identifying software companies’ potential to solve modern problems across industries. We help businesses grow into market leaders through our in-house operations team and by increasing innovation and efficiency behind the scenes.

Before T/R, I studied economics and political science at the University of Michigan. I then continued sharpening my persistence and research skills while interning at the Korean Trade-Investment Promotion Agency and the Borgen Project, where I successfully lobbied Sen. Dianne Feinstein to co-sponsor a global anti-poverty bill.

As an investment analyst, I closely examine our target industries to identify market opportunities and prospective portfolio companies. Since my first day at T/R, the team has been incredibly collaborative—not only in the workplace but with the portfolio companies that we work alongside on a day-to-day basis.

When I’m not delving into the latest news about growing software industries, you can find me in a dance class, strolling through Fort Mason’s Sunday market finding new ingredients to cook with, or exploring San Francisco.
