Executive Assistant

“Every day we open our eyes to new challenges.  Whether you approach these challenges with fear or anticipation, approach.  You’ll learn more by working through the process than you would have by watching from the sidelines.” 

Kristen joined Osage Venture Partners in 2017. Prior to joining Osage, she worked with SSH Real Estate within its Property Management Division assisting in the development process of the East Market Street mixed-use, commercial and residential campus. Prior to SSH, Kristen worked with Harris Williams & Co., a global investment bank specializing in middle-market mergers and acquisition. There she supported the Philadelphia office, which led much of the company’s business development initiatives across a range of industry groups.

Outside of Osage, Kristen freelances as an architectural photographer and serves as the graphic designer for a local Divison II rugby team, Philadelphia-Whitemarsh RFC.  She previously served as Vice President of the Philadelphia Field Hockey Associated (PFHA), currently the largest post-collegiate field hockey league in the nation.

Kristen graduated from Penn State with a dual B.A. in Communications and Photography.  Kristen also met her husband (and better half), John, while at Penn State.  The two now reside in the Philadelphia suburbs with their daughter, Lucy, and dog, Sandy.
