Tell us about what you're doing with your life.
I have been Chief Operating Officer and Chief Compliance Officer of Sheffield Asset Management for the last eight years. I oversee a variety of functions including operations, client service, investor relations, marketing, risk management, and compliance for the $750-million investment management firm. 

I am involved in a number of charitable initiatives supporting a variety of healthcare, educational, and community service organizations and I am a member of the President’s Council of Cornell Women and our Class of 1995 Council.

The dual working parent life is crazy but good. In my somewhat non-existent spare time, I love to travel, read, see movies, and cheer for my NY sports teams (after a decade in Chicago, I’ll root for the Cubs, Blackhawks, Bulls and Bears…as long as they are not playing the Yankees, Rangers, Knicks or Giants…)

What is your favorite memory of your time at Cornell?

I have so many great memories, it’s really hard to choose. But I think one of my favorites was seeing all the seniors walking around on Wednesdays when we had wine class with the little “lunch boxes” that held the glasses. Was a little rough for me though as my Daily Sun column was often due the next day and heading down to the Sun office to write after that class was not easy!!!

Which Cornell classmates do you keep in touch with?

My freshman roommate Erika Lintner Thomas ’95 actually lives in Chicago now, so we see each other when our crazy working mom lives allow. I also see my former roommate Ralane Randolph Bonn ’94 a few times a year. I had a great time at Jazz Fest in New Orleans this year with Stacy Scavo Cerone ‘95. I also was able to grab lunch in Toronto this year with Jake Karam ’95.

What are you most looking forward to at Reunion 2015?

Showing my kids Cornell before Josh brainwashes them about Washington University in St. Louis or Yale!
