In brief, here's who I am, what I've done, and what's important to me.
I am delighted that you have chosen to join me here at my website. The objective of the website is to provide the viewer with an overview of my successes, interests, experience, education and associations which essentially paint a picture of my life, past and present. I hope you find it interesting and vicarious.
My successes have been many and varied. They broadly track my various lives, as an international investment banker, an art historian, mother and community zealot.
As an investment banker, I was based in London, where I spent 16 years, as well as New York. On behalf of significant institutions, I invested hundreds of millions of dollars primarily in the UK, France, Germany, Scandinavia and Italy. As well as in emerging markets, such as Slovakia, Poland, Czech Republic and Hungary. By the time I retired as an investment banker, I had created and was managing a $2 billion portfolio of investments.
Needless to say, my interests are equally as varied as my achievements. They include the arts, philanthropy, sports (tennis, hiking, English horse riding, skiing), foreign languages, travel to exotic places and all sorts of nature and beauty. We are blessed to be in one of the most beautiful locations on earth and in a place of great creativity.
