I spent twenty years as a partner and senior portfolio manager at Canyon Capital, a $25 billion hedge fund. In 2017, I was named one of the “Top 50 Women in Hedge Funds” by Ernst & Young. 

I started writing after retiring in 2018. I publish as a Forbes contributor and in financial publications. My book, Damsel in Distressed: My life in the golden age of hedge funds, will be released in September 2021.

One of the only senior women in the hedge fund business, I played key roles in complicated bankruptcies, serving as a leading creditors’ committee member for Puerto Rico, and as a restructuring committee member for U.S. airlines in the wake of the September 11 attacks. 

I currently serve on the boards of Digicel Group, Ready Capital (RC), Studio City (MSC) and Tiptree (TIPT). I was a director and chairman of the audit committee of PG&E (PCG) during its fifteen-month bankruptcy process and emergence.
