I spent twenty years at Canyon Capital, a $25 billion multi-strategy hedge fund, as a partner and senior portfolio manager. In 2017, I was named one of the “50 Leading Women in Hedge Funds” by the Hedge Fund Journal and Ernst & Young. After retiring in 2018, I became a contributor to Forbes, started writing for a variety of financial publications, and speaking broadly on hedge funds and diversity. My book, Damsel in Distressed, is the first hedge fund memoir written by a woman. It was released by Simon & Schuster on September 7, 2021.
I currently serve on the boards of four publicly-traded and one private companies. I was a director and the audit committee chairperson for PG&E during its fifteen-month bankruptcy process and emergence in 2019-2020.
As an investor, I primarily focused on stressed and distressed investments as well as corporate securitizations, and I developed and 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.
I graduated from Stanford University Graduate School and HEC Paris.
