Prior to my doctorate, I was a Managing Director at Aon Risk Services, a global insurance broker and consultant. In this role, I ran the East Coast operations of the global business unit, which handled the multinational risk management needs overseas of Fortune 500 companies. I developed a team of 40 geographically-dispersed professionals, set best practices for the global practice as a whole, and met retention and double-digit growth goals year-on-year. I was selected to be a part of EXCELerate, a program focused on developing the top 50 women globally, and went on to lead the Women's International Network (WIN) worldwide chapters. At that time, I authored several articles on career and workforce opportunities. I have been a mentor to young professionals and a coach for social entrepreneurs participating in Social Venture Partners' Fast Pitch. I serve on the board of Environmental Charter School and on the board of Lionsraw. I received my MBA from Fordham University with Beta Gamma Sigma high honors and my BA from Colgate University.
