She was captain of the team at Berkeley and won 3+ national championships and 10+ regional championships. After graduation, Arting headed to New York where she worked at J.P.Morgan as an investment banker in the M&A group, and then transitioned into private equity at AEA Investors, where she worked for the past two years before attending Harvard Business School. In between, Arting also spent time in Dallas, TX and Newport Beach, CA, working with AEA's portfolio companies on the ground. Currently, Arting is working on completing her MBA and plans to return to AEA Investors as a Vice President in their consumer investing practice.

Arting gained admission to both Harvard and Stanford's MBA programs, and can speak in particular to crafting applications around those two schools. Arting is also able to provide interview preparation for financial services careers in investment banking and private equity.
In her spare time, Arting enjoys golfing, equestrian sports, eating her way through Boston, traveling with her friends and family, and obsessing over TV shows like Killing Eve and Game of Thrones.
