An amazing group of 10 students chose not to head to the sunny beaches of Florida over their Spring Break, but are participating instead in a week-long alternative program, volunteering over 40 hours for area non-profits serving the needs of women and girls.

Senior Portfolio Strategist and Chief of Staff, Goldman Sachs...
Hired by Goldman Sachs straight out of university, Koch has been with the firm for nine years. At 27, she was promoted to lead a seven-person team focused on capital raising for GSAM’s Europe, the Middle East and Africa equity business. Under her leadership, the team more than tripled equity fund assets under management from $1.6bn to $5.1bn.
In January 2011, she was given a new role working for Jim O’Neill, for which she has been travelling extensively to meet GSAM’s key clients to formulate strategies for growth and emerging markets. She also led the launch and promotion of the first GSAM product to invest in early-stage emerging markets such as Nigeria, Vietnam and Bangladesh.
Her interest in developing countries extends beyond portfolio management to her personal pursuits, including trekking in the Himalayas, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and diving in the Galapagos. Koch studied literature and economics at the University of Notre Dame, US, and said her education had trained her to “ask the important questions, synthesize disparate pieces of information and come to the right conclusions.”
The Women in Philanthropy Summit, March 3-4 at #Otterbein, has the goal of informing participants about the multiple dimensions of philanthropy and inspiring them to become more involved in the act of giving. Learn more and register today. http://ow.ly/IpFYG
