Lena earned an MSW from Loyola University Chicago and a B.S. in Human Development and Psychology from Indiana University. She is also a certified mediator from the Mediation Training & Consultation Institute in Michigan. 

She brings over 4 years of experience from Wall St. and Chicago in the Private Equity Family Office sector, and over 3 years in the Technology automated vehicle space in Pittsburgh. She has been an executive business partner for almost a decade, and in her last role, her ending title was Chief of Staff, which allowed her to be an active part of the leadership team.  While her studies focused on how people’s minds work, Lena has paired those skills with her sharp business acumen and helped many executives operate more effectively. At Level Agency, she partners directly with Patrick Patterson to help him strategically in his day-to-day. 

Outside of her professional goals and work, Lena likes to dive into captivating fiction novels, watch a good television series with her husband and rescue Chiweenie, and travel to the beach whenever her schedule allows.
