Karen Zelnick Rivera

Karen Zelnick Rivera works in venture capital developing portfolio communities. That is a huge step up from her first job after college, where she at one point found herself having to stuff a gift bag at each of the 6,015 seats at Radio City Music Hall with Aqua di Gio cologne samples at 4 a.m. (It took years before she could stand the smell of that cologne again.). She loves pancakes and anything strawberry flavored. If she could spend an entire day climbing trees, she would. The fictional character she most identifies with is Anne of Green Gables. Her strengths include watercoloring, water skiing, and water drinking.
