    What I Do

    After interning with Rumson Capital LLC for over a year, I was offered a full-time employment opportunity upon graduation in January 2007. Rumson Capital LLC is an investment advisor managing over $500 million in hedge fund assets engaged in a variety of global arbitrage strategies. Rumson Capital LLC is registered with the SEC, CFTC, and NFA. My current title is analyst, and I am also cross trained in operations and trade support. Some of my responsibilities include portfolio database management, executing queries, and research.

    The Role of Mathematics

    The mathematics program at Monmouth University taught me how to work individually as well as how to be a team player. The analytical and problem solving skills I acquired as a math major help me daily in my work environment. Though I apply mathematics directly as well as indirectly to complete my responsibilities at Rumson Capital LLC, it is the mathematics discipline that enabled me to enhance my thinking skills and take on challenges with confidence. The firm math foundation that I have acquired at Monmouth University will continue to aid me in my new career path.

    My Background

    In addition to majoring in mathematics and secondary education, I minored in finance. I achieved Dean's List status every semester, and I was awarded the Monmouth University Academic Scholarship and the Samuel Hays Magill Scholarship. Over the course of my undergraduate education I have been inducted to various honor societies including Phi Eta Sigma, Kappa Delta Pi, Lambda Sigma Tau, and Kappa Mu Epsilon, the Mathematics Honor Society, in which I held the position of junior liaison and treasurer. In the future, I plan on attending graduate school to further my education in mathematics.
