As the Kataly Foundation’s Chief Investment Officer, Lynne leads the Foundation’s community investment strategy under the Restorative Economics framework.
Lynne also incorporates her deep experience in the integrated capital approach to work with Kataly’s grantee and investee partners to ensure the needs of their organization are at the center of the work. Lynne brings more than fifteen years of experience working in the fields of accounting, banking and impact investing. In her previous role as the Managing Director of the Olamina Fund and Head of Lending at Candide Group, she launched, with community feedback, the Olamina Fund, which focuses on funding organizations that have faced systemic racism and intentional extraction of resources. Olamina is also a place to train BIPOC fund managers to lead impact investing.
Lynne is a Chartered Accountant and has an MBA in Corporate Finance. She lives in San Francisco with her cat Penny, who is regularly mortified by Lynne’s attempts to shuffle dance and speak Italian. When she isn’t dancing to house music, she is off on an adventure, whether it’s backpacking, a road trip, or an international flight to explore new cultures.
