“Fewer than 2% of professional money managers are women. I am living proof that the glass ceiling can be broken. I strongly believe, “If I can do it, you can do it!” I encourage you to consider being part of this profession where you can do good and do well – this initiative from CFA Institute will give you a head start.”

““Raise your hand” is my most fervent advice to women. I never shirked from taking on more responsibility, even though there were times when I had no idea how I would fulfill it. The investment management industry uses both the right and left side of the brain, allowing you to leverage and express your hard and soft skills. I urge more women to explore this highly challenging yet highly fulfilling vocation.”
