Roxanne N. Thorelli

I take my work seriously, but not myself.

My Approach

I work closely with clients to understand their businesses and enjoy handling all aspects of a transaction, to ensure each piece of the puzzle fits together and the transaction as a whole is right for my client. I particularly enjoy working with start-up companies and drafting securities offerings for smaller businesses; the excitement that my clients have for their businesses is contagious. During undergraduate school, I was a marketing intern for the Eau Claire Sport Warehouse, a start-up exercise facility, where I discovered my passion for working with smaller companies.

Outside of work, I love being outdoors and traveling the world. I have visited six continents and almost fifty countries. I plan to visit each of the Seven Wonders of the World, all 50 U.S. states and all seven continents. My favorite season is the summer, when I can go boating and hiking. I don’t like the extreme cold, but I try to appreciate it by skiing and ice skating.
