Carolyn has parlayed her more than 20 years of investment banking experience into helping entrepreneurs prepare for market, evaluate strategic alternatives, and navigate every step of a sale or capital raise.

At the same time, Carolyn understands the nuances of corporate strategy and capital markets. Most of her work hinges on bringing together the right people—whether that means connecting clients with key partners, matchmaking between sellers and buyers, or building on Harbor View’s capabilities.

Carolyn received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Dickinson College and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Accounting and Finance from the University of Chicago.
