Greetings Fellow Dreamers & Doers,

My goal is to support you on your journey towards making a lasting positive impact. My team and I have dedicated our lives to finding new ways of getting everyone to dream bigger and do more together. We deeply believe that uniting rising leaders around meaningful endeavors will spark a new renaissance that unlocks human potential. 

Our inspiration for IVY has been strongly influenced by my experiences at Harvard Business School and Brown University. Leading universities have a proven track record of substantially accelerating social, professional, and intellectual development. Together with fellow IVY members and team, we are cultivating a new kind of community that stands to provide the same benefits to all rising leaders throughout their lives. 

Everything we do is shaped by our extraordinary team of 90 full-time leaders based across our seven chapters in the USA. I’m currently based in NYC, and travel frequently to learn from our expanding community. Originally from Turkey and Scotland, I’ve always been inspired by my humanitarian mother Suzi and entrepreneurial father Iliya. Prior to IVY, I worked at Morgan Stanley in M&A and Strategy. My favorite sports are skiing and rugby, and I have a real weakness for French bulldogs. 

Please reach out to me anytime to share your thoughts, ideas, and advice. I am grateful for your interest in IVY, and look forward to meeting you soon!
