In the Senate, she advised then Chairman John Kerry on international and domestic economic and financial issues. During her time in the Senate, she was also the architect of the bi-partisan National Infrastructure Bank legislation (The BUILD Act) introduced in March 2011 and included in President Obama’s Jobs Act.

Over her investment banking career, she managed businesses ranging from European Debt Capital Markets, Emerging Markets Debt Capital Markets, to Sovereign, Supranational and Public Sector Banking. In this capacity, she managed public and private financings for governments, corporations and banks, and related advisory work, in both developed and emerging markets.
