I'm the CEO and Founder of Copper8 Strategies, LLC. Copper8 is a strategic finance firm providing services to small business, venture backed start-ups and non-profits. I have a passion for supporting founders & business owners on their journey to success. I drive business growth through financial strategy development and execution. My services include fractional CFO support, management consulting, and advisory services.
I started Copper8 Strategies, LLC in 2018 working with tech start-ups doing market research, financial modeling, and venture funding preparation. Now, my offerings include serving small businesses and non-profit organizations. Prior to founding Copper8, I spent five and half years at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in grant-making, focusing on tech investments within K-12 & higher education, then transitioned into the corporate world as a finance manager at Starbucks.
I hold Master of Business Administration from the University of Washington Foster School of Business with a focus on entrepreneurial finance and venture capital.
Outside of the “office”, you’ll find me remodeling my fixer-upper house with my husband, building Legos or looking at bugs with my 4-year-old daughter and 11-month-old son, and planning my post-covid travel adventure.
Community of like-minded entrepreneurs that are also working parents; networking; work through my visions and mission for my business.
