Previous Experience:

Prior to joining insitro, I was senior director of finance and operations at BridgeBio Pharma, where in roles of increasing responsibility I led key elements of the evaluation and execution of the company’s financing strategy. During my time at BridgeBio Pharma, I led the raise of more than $2 billion of capital across equity-linked and senior-secured debt structures, and facilitated equity sales and repurchases. I began my career in healthcare investment banking at Bank of America where I advised a wide spectrum of companies within the life sciences sector on capital raising and strategic transactions.

I operate across the finance and corporate development & strategy teams to guide critical decisions through expertise in financial modeling and analysis, shape the company’s treasury strategy, drive strategic capital allocation and financial planning, and contribute to the evolution of insitro’s compelling value story, illustrating the company’s achievements and growth trajectory.
