I’m a champion for leadership development, girls education & empowerment, and global investing.
Perpetual student. Avid traveler. Financial analyst and personal finance maven. My passion lies in connecting people and ideas across the developed and developing world. A grateful recipient of over two decades of corporate training in personal finance, leadership development, sales, and public speaking, I apply my expertise as a strategy consultant to impact investing firms and non-profits and as an investor, writer, speaker, executive coach and mentor.
I spent 22 successful years in investment management, leading strategic U.S. business building initiatives at a start-up and notable firms like JP Morgan and Matthews Asia. Combining my analytical mindset, education-based communications style and a natural ease for connecting people and ideas, I’ve led teams which have raised billions of dollars in assets in innovative investment strategies from institutional clients and investment advisors.
What really drives me? Having traveled personally to explore 60 countries with a particular emphasis on developing economies in Asia and Africa, I am inspired by individuals with ideas, passion, grit and goals. Travel opened my eyes to the critical role of women globally. I believe that girls education and empowerment is the best global investment opportunity of our lifetime.
I am captivated by the many creative ideas and organizations in leadership development, girls education and global investing. I seek to add my voice and be a connector.
Through my writing, I commit to share with you the stories of people that see things differently and my personal learnings. I’m fueled by your continued ideas and inspiration, so please be generous. And if you find ideas that inspire you, please pass them on.
