Personally, opposite of my Southern roots, Rebecca hails from the North, from a small town called Morristown, New Jersey – also known as “the military capital of the American Revolution” because of its role in our independence from Great Britain. She lived there for most of her youth until her family picked up and moved West to Southern California.
Finding herself attracted to the California lifestyle, Rebecca decided to stay West and attend UC Berkeley, majoring in Political Economy. There, she met her husband, Chris, who she married in 2016. Professionally, Rebecca and I have traveled a similar journey, having cut our teeth in the investment banking training grounds and then from Associate to Principal here at Founders Circle. As of late, Rebecca and Chris have added four more little feet to the household in the form of a tail wagging dachshund.
Rebecca has such a colorful background filled with avid travels, alpine backpacking trips, sailing, and becoming an oenophile. She’s very comfortable at the helm with an innate ability to maintain calm in turbulent waters. Such was the case when she was skippering a sailboat in Sardinia that hit a submerged boulder, which then caused a grease fire. You can imagine how equally impressed and intimidated when we first met her.
