What do you do at Mizuho?
Mizuho Corporate Access creates events to help our corporate clients expand their investor base and to allow our institutional investor clients make more informed investment decisions. Our team works closely with research analysts, capital markets, corporate banking, sales & trading, and marketing teams to originate and execute non-deal roadshows, conferences, reverse roadshows and field trips. As Head of Corporate Access and Lead Event Originator, I’m focused on our mission to produce these valuable events and to help our clients achieve their strategic goals. We work to increase the number of productive events, deepen client relationships, and drive business across verticals.  

What surprised you about Mizuho?
At a firm with 56,000 employees worldwide, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by my ability to make an impact, to have my entrepreneurial spirit supported, and to feel like I’m a part of a family.

What’s a particularly proud moment you’ve had here?
When an Investor Relations Officer, CEO, or CFO takes the time to praise our team after an event, I am most proud. Receiving this positive feedback makes us excited for our next event.

What do you do for fun?
Run in Central Park. Relax on a beach. Volunteer as President and Founder of Hannah Banana Foundation, a non-profit organization that gives therapeutic gifts to hospitalized adults to inspire optimism and healing.
