Describe a recent accomplishment.
I am proud of my success of closing deals with new sponsor relationships for the firm. My efforts have enabled Monroe to expand its contact base throughout the East Coast Region.

How are you a champion for change?
As a member of the Junior League of Greenwich, Connecticut, I have spent the last few years creating a new leadership program, Boys Achieving More, or BAM. The first of its kind, the program is designed to facilitate communication with fifth grade boys about concepts of respect, trust, communication and leadership. It required special approval from the board, as historically all Junior League programs have been designed by, made for, and run by women. The first two sessions were a great success.

How are you advancing the state of women?
It’s crucial to develop relationships with mentors and also to serve as one. Recently, I was invited to be a mentor in the Financial Women’s Association’s Pacesetter’s Program, which supports the development of the next generation of women leaders by providing a customized development plan, mentor sessions and networking.
