Director of Investment Management, Principal

Where did you grow up? Where do you live now?

I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA (DeKalb county, y’all – 30345). I currently live in south Asheville with my husband, son, and one very spoiled cat.

What’s the one thing people say you’re best at?

People seem to enjoy my writing, which also serves as a creative outlet for me. Years ago when we started our blog, I asked if I could contribute and if it would be OK to inject a little humor. To my delight the answer was yes, the leash was long, and I’ve been having fun with it ever since.

What fuels you every day in your work?

Coffee. Also, the desire for continual improvement for the organization and our employees, and for myself.

What do you enjoy most about working at Modera?

I love working in an industry that is rapidly growing and dynamic, with really smart people who share many of the same values and priorities. Keeping up with our ever-changing processes and technology has got to be lowering my dementia risk, so that’s a positive.
