Acceptance and Emerging Payments at MasterCard

Startupbootcamp FinTech London Mentor

As a member of the Emerging Payments team at MasterCard, I work closely with leading Emerging Payment partners and in the distribution of MasterCard’s digital wallet solution (MasterPass) in the UK & Ireland. A key aspect of my role involves scoping opportunities to drive acceptance in new categories; by leveraging internal assets and innovative solutions. Additionally I run an Innovation series where I invite relevant market players to talk about the latest trends and developments within the FinTech space.

I am an active member of the UK startup community, a STEM advocate, and actively promote women in technology. I also support the MasterCard Start Path programme in Europe as a mentor and evangelist.

I hold degrees from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and am a professional pianist.
