My highest commitment is to help humans, and our ecological home, flourish together.
I am a writer, advisor, and project catalyzer who works with investors, policy makers, and organizations who want to use their power to support a living and equitable future.
Currently, I am a Senior Fellow at the American Economic Liberties Project and co-lead of the Access to Markets initiative. I also serve as Board Chair of The Predistribution Initiative which aims to improve investment structures and practices to address systemic risks like inequality, biodiversity loss, and climate change. I've also collaborated with and advised organizations like: Bloomberg Beta, Tiedemann Advisors, the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society, the Province of Ontario, SheEO, the Criterion Institute, and others.
I co-authored The Myth of Capitalism: Monopolies and the Death of Competition with Jonathan Tepper — named one of the Financial Times’ Best Books of 2018. My writing has been featured in publications such as: The Financial Times, The Globe and Mail, Stanford Social Innovation Review, Responsible Investor, and The Washington Post. I currently author the Embodied Economics newsletter.
I've presented to audiences around the world on competition policy, macroeconomics, and new economic thinking at venues including: the Oxford Union, the International Women's Forum, and the Hong Kong Foreign Correspondents' Club.
I have an MBA from the Oxford Saïd Business School and a BA in International Studies from Baylor University. I've worked across diverse fields including: youth mentorship and education, social impact bonds and impact investing, macroeconomic research, and federal antitrust and competition policy, among others.
I live in Seattle, Washington with my husband, and nudibranchs are my favorite sea creature.
