Meet the Athlete

Kristen is from Homer, Alaska, a small fishing village, and the halibut fishing capital of the world. Her parents still live in Alaska and have supported her athletic endeavors since childhood, along with her four siblings. Kristen graduated from Harvard in 2016 and was a varsity rower for two years in college. She currently holds Harvard's record for the fastest 2k erg time for lightweight women. In high school, she attended Phillips Academy in Massachusetts, where she was a honor roll student, varsity runner, swimmer, and rower for all four years. After graduation, she worked as an investment associate at Threshold Ventures, an early stage venture capital firm in Silicon Valley. Her role involved sourcing new investments, conducting due diligence on prospective investments, attending board meetings, and working with our current portfolio. In addition to investing, she is passionate about gender parity and supporting more women in technology, entrepreneurship, and investing. As an investor, she hosted free office hours for female entrepreneurs and was a cohort captain for All Raise, a community of female Venture Capitalists. She started cycling in New York City in 2016, and immediately fell in love with the sport. In mid-2018, she moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and in 2020, began racing for Team TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank. She primarily races road, but still explores other disciplines including gravel, track, and esports.
