I received a BS in Economics with a concentration in Finance from Wharton. During my time at Penn, I took classes in fixed income security valuation, foreign exchange, and both financial and corporate accounting. I have spent nine years in the finance industry and have worked in asset management. At my current job I constantly evaluate the impact of macroeconomic data and developments on individual company performance. I am also a CFA charterholder, and passing the three exams necessary to become a charterholder involves a deep understanding of corporate finance, accounting, portfolio construction, and economics.
