That experience determined the mechanism for my philanthropy to Wake
Forest. As far as the specifics of my commitment were concerned, I turned
back to my days as a student.
Majoring in math was uncommon for women in the early 1980s, when society
was gripped even more than it is today with the inaccurate notion that
women weren't wired for such things. I was going to buck the trend. When I
was growing up, I added numbers in my head. Just for fun.
I turned my Wake Forest experience into a career in which I now run my own
boutique investment bank.
Wake Forest really set me up for life. I feel it's incumbent on me to give
back to the university that got me and my career started. Math is a big
part of that. I would like to support people majoring in math.
The result will be a scholarship fund intended primarily to reward the
academic interest and achievement of math majors. The scholarship was
inspired by the desire to attract more women to the field of mathematics.
