She is also a former advisor with The Vanguard Group for clients with retirement plan assets ranging from $175 million to $500 million, according to the FPA announcement.

She is a past member of the FPA Board of Directors and serves on the Advisory Board for the Center for Investment and Wealth Management at the University of California, Irvine. In addition, she has served on the boards of WomanSage and the American Poetry Review and was a finance director for the Young Friends of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
