KPMG has beefed up its alternative investments funds practice with hires in New York and Los Angeles.

Most recently, she served as tax director with private equity firm Hellman and Friedman. Prior to that she was a financial services executive director for asset management at Ernst and Young, providing services to hedge funds as well as private equity clients. And prior to that, she was a senior manager in KPMG’s federal tax practice.
