A true third culture kid, Lucy grew up living between the UK and the USA. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Dartmouth College in 2010, where she studied literature and psychology. In 2015, Lucy founded BridgeU, the leading college and careers guidance provider connecting international schools and students in 130 countries to higher education institutions globally.

Prior to BridgeU’s acquisition by Kaplan in 2020, Lucy had raised $12m in venture capital from leading investors in Europe, the U.S. and Asia to drive BridgeU’s global expansion to support regional offices in London, Madrid, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Dubai, Bogota and Washington D.C. Lucy has been labelled an ‘Entrepreneur Role Model’ by the European Commission, and won Tech Entrepreneur of the Year at a ceremony hosted at the House of Commons celebrating leading UK female tech entrepreneurs. In 2016, Lucy was named to the Forbes ‘30 under 30” list and in 2021, Lucy was named one of the top 100 Dartmouth Alumni having a profound impact on various areas of technology.
