    It's amazing to see what all these great entrepreneurs are doing and how excited they are. They bring so much energy to the mission of their company, and I love being able to help them execute on their business plans and achieve their goals. 

    Launch Moment: We recently worked with a founder in the sale of his company, Foldes Financial Management, to another leading investment management company, Evensky & Katz. We worked closely with this founder because this was the sale of his "baby." He had built this company over many years and was very in tune with the human elements—such as making sure his employees and his family and himself were all taken care of properly. We see this all the time when we work with founders throughout the lifecycle of their company until their exit event. It is such a great experience to work with founders who pour every ounce into their companies to make sure the outcome is perfect. They deserve it.

    Off the Clock: I spend most of my free time with my kiddos who are 12 and 9. They are at a fantastic age—they are free-spirited and happy and their enthusiasm is contagious—kind of similar to my startup clients. I also love playing tennis, which I don't do very often, but going out and hitting the ball as hard as I can feels awesome.

    Favorite App: Waze. I can't drive without it. My husband jokes that I trust what Waze says over what he says. And he's right. I also like Bandsintown to see if there's a great band playing in town in a cool small venue that I can go to last minute.
