At Northwood Since



"I wanted to have a direct, meaningful impact on clients' lives. In a world of deep specialization, I believe there is immense value in being able to step back and see the entire picture. Northwood was the perfect opportunity to combine my accounting/tax background, with my passion for capital markets.”
