092: Championing Cybersecurity with Rachel Wilson
While cybersecurity is not a new concept, a spotlight has been placed on its importance given the ever-increasing sophistication of cybercriminals, COVID-19, and the new work-from-home evolution.
Our incredibly special guest is none other than the Head of Cybersecurity for Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, Rachel Wilson.
After her childhood love of all things cryptography, code making and code breaking, her dream of working for the National Security Agency (NSA) was realized, where she spent 15 years in various leadership roles and managed the NSA's counterterrorism operation and led global enterprise in detecting and disrupting terrorist plotting against the U.S. and its allies. Thereafter she entered the world of financial services and was later tapped by Morgan Stanley.
Rachel is extremely passionate about cybersecurity and this timely discussion helps us all understand where we are with cybersecurity and how we can protect ourselves. You don’t want to miss this.
091: New Thoughts about Negotiating with Mori Taheripour
In this episode, I sat work with the fabulous Mori Taheripour. The powerhouse professor who teaches Negotiation and Dispute Resolution to undergraduate and graduate students at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. She’s also the author of Bring Yourself: How to Harness the Power of Connection to Negotiate Fearlessly.
From Public Health in the AIDS field to teaching at Wharton, Mori’s experiences have armed her with the skills to be a great negotiator. For her, negotiation starts with learning more about oneself. She believes that you need to better understand yourself, what you want, and know that you deserve what you’re asking for. Once you have a grasp on that, you’ll connect with others effortlessly.
To hear more on negotiations, what they mean, and how to approach them - listen in! Mori provides some powerful insight that we can all benefit from.
090: Conversation and Care with Dr. Joy Lere
Our special guest is Dr. Joy Lere, a psychologist, consultant, speaker and writer whose practice focuses on the intersection of human behavior and finance. Specializing in money, mindset and meaning, her experience has shown that the primary issue driving demand for her services, directly or indirectly, relates to money. She helps patients become financially savvy, emotionally strong and confident.
In my jubilant conversation with Joy, she discussed how to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and how it all starts with self-care. Self-care is about making choices for yourself that gives you an opportunity to reflect, de-stress and regain control over your sleep, your calendar and personal space where you feel grounded. She also spoke of the recently common feeling of “important anxiety.” It’s a response that allows us to adapt to the world around us.
This conversation was exactly what I needed to center myself and hope it will do the same for you. Listen in!
089: Women, Movies, and Media with Madeline Di Nonno
This guest is one for the ages. We sat down with The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, CEO, Madeline Di Nonno to discuss ways they’re encouraging television and other media to infuse intersectionality, diversity and inclusion in their content.
Founded in 2004 by Academy Award Winning Actor Geena Davis, the Institute is the only organization working collaboratively within the entertainment industry to engage, educate and influence the creation of gender-balanced onscreen portrayals, reducing harmful stereotypes and creating an abundance of unique female characters targeting children 11 and under. The nonprofit’s slogan is, If she can see it, she can be it.TM
I’ve been following Geena and her organization for quite some time. When I joined as a member to support the organization, I dreamed of having this episode’s guest on my podcast. What an interview!

Lisa Moyle is co-founder of VC Innovations where she’s committed to connecting established financial institutions with financial technology (FinTech) startups and technology providers. All the while keeping an eye towards making sure women are part of the equation. Her annual event, FinTech Talents, beings together this ecosystem of nearly 3,000 attendees to facilitate networking, establishing business relationships, and giving university students a look inside the industry.
Aside from creating memorable, unique and interactive experiences at these events, her goal is to make sure women are not only a part of this ecosystem, but they’re also part of the voices that help create the products to be consumed by and meet the needs of women, specifically, women baby boomers.
