Biography

I spent twenty years at Canyon Capital, a $25 billion multi-strategy hedge fund, as a partner and senior portfolio manager. I am a contributor to Forbes, write for a variety of financial publications, and speak broadly on hedge funds and diversity. My book, Damsel in Distressed, is the first hedge fund memoir written by a woman. It will be released by Simon & Schuster on September 7, 2021.

I currently serve on the boards of ReadyCap, a mortgage REIT (2021 to present), Studio City International, a casino in Macau (2018 to present), Tiptree Inc., a specialty insurance (2020 to present), Digicel Group, a wireless operator (2020 to present) and Osiris Acquisition Corp (2021 to present). I was a director and the audit committee chairperson for PG&E during its fifteen-month bankruptcy process and emergence (2019).

At Canyon Capital, I primarily focused on stressed and distressed investments as well as corporate securitizations, and I led the collateralized loan obligations 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. In 2017, I was named one of the “Top 50 Women in Hedge Funds” by the Hedge Fund Journal and Ernst & Young.

I graduated from Stanford University Graduate School and HEC Paris.
