Joy Avedesian

I am currently the Senior Managing Director at Capstone Partners in Newport Beach.

Having played soccer while attending University of California, Irvine, I understand the competitive spirit and valuable attributes sports can instill in one's life.

Joy began her soccer career at Arcadia High School, and later moved on to University of California, Irvine. There she was named a Big West Scholar Athlete as well a Big West Champion. Aside from soccer, Joy achieved a B.A. in Criminology, Law and Society. Using her degree she was able to intern at the White House under the Clinton administration, focusing on the National Drug Control Policy. After graduation, Joy brought her leadership off the field and into her community -- becoming the President of the Young Professional Women's Club. In her professional life -- prior to Capstone Partners -- Joy served as a Director at Kaplan Professional, Finance Manager at Marriott International, as well as a Financial Professional at Northwestern Mutual. Joy has exceeded expectations at every level in her professional career, earning multiple honors and awards as well as speaking across the country. Joy attributes much of her success to the values she obtained on the soccer field, and is looking to connect with other athletes who have the same competitive passion and desire to succeed.
