VIII El Camino Real

I'm a preacher's kid and clergy spouse with missionary roots in Latin America, where I lived for seven years and led a 500-house Habitat for Humanity hurricane reconstruction project in Bluefields in the Anglican Diocese of Nicaragua. From there I earned an MBA and worked for 20 years raising billions of dollars in the municipal bond market to fund climate-related public infrastructure projects including start-up renewable energy utilities, mass transit and high-speed rail programs, and clean water utilities. In my current role as a Managing Director on the team managing the largest bank- owned municipal bond portfolio in the world, my responsibilities include careful analysis of pension fund policies of several hundred municipalities across the US where we’ve invested capital. My deep hope is to bring these experiences and capabilities to address the challenges the Church Pension Fund faces as it manages its assets and businesses to meet the needs of the church.
