The co-founder and CEO of Beacon Pointe Advisors got a “B” grade on her firm’s business plan, keeps an updated list of mistakes made by financial industry players, runs marathons, blogs, coaches her children’s soccer teams, and offers solace to Guatemalan orphans.
On the scheduled date of her interview with this magazine, she was operating on four hours sleep because she was at Staples Center the night before attending the Sacramento Kings versus Los Angeles Clippers NBA game.
“I do like sports,” says the former UC Irvine collegiate volleyball player. At 5-foot 5-inches she is more Misty May than Kerri Walsh (though she played indoor, not sand, volleyball), guarding the back line against opponents’ spikes and volleys. The Clippers won the game, by the way, and the Beacon Pointe co-founder proved during the interview that she had no shortage of energy despite her evening of sleep deprivation.
