Alston & Bird
Describe your work: As a senior associate in investment management, my work focuses primarily on fund formation and advising sponsors, advisers, investors and other parties on all aspects of fund launches—whether private equity, hedge fund or commodity pool vehicles. On any given day, I may prepare organizational and offering materials; advise clients on structuring, registration and other compliance matters; and research issues on a wide scope of topics. I love what I do, because I feel like I get to learn something new and do something different every day.
What activities do you enjoy outside of work? I recently joined the Lincoln Center’s Junior Business Council, so I attend a variety of their musical, theater and dance performances. I enjoy the activities coordinated by the Virginia Club of New York, and I travel whenever possible with family, friends or solo. I’ve taken trips to Peru, Sweden, the island of Réunion, Cuba and Australia over the last couple years. I also try to fit in a little tennis when I can!
Are you where you expected to be at this stage of your career and life? Graduating from UVA Law in 2009, right in the middle of the economic downturn and all of the related uncertainty, I’m just incredibly happy to be at my current position in my career. I’m very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with an amazing team on interesting matters for great clients, and I am excited about the direction of my practice for the future.
What do you like about your life 10 years after law school? I just purchased my first apartment on the Upper East Side, I’m excited about my practice at A&B, and I’m surrounded by a phenomenal circle of friends and family in New York City. I’m looking forward to family trips to Portugal and Croatia in 2019, as well as my 10-year reunion. Things are great!
