Hear me say my name

Judy manages the regional investment portfolio (MRI and PRI) and represents Meyer in the impact investing ecosystem through the US Impact Investing Alliance and the Oregon Capital Scan Steering Committee. She also supports various aspects of the investment team daily operations, including optimizing technology initiatives and completing industry surveys. She is hopeful that Meyer will soon launch a refreshed MRI and PRI strategy, as it is an innovative way to provide capital to underserved populations.

Judy is the most inspired when she feels connected to people, the work and the outcomes we achieve when we collaborate. With the wins, and even during the setbacks, we can count on each other to be committed and kind. Meyer’s value of interconnection reminds her how important it is to appreciate each other, to safeguard our resources and to have a positive attitude in the pursuit of justice and progress.

She holds a bachelor of science in economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, an MBA from Willamette University and an executive certificate in nonprofit fund Development from Notre Dame. After over two decades as a commercial banker, she pivoted in 2017 to leverage her skills and knowledge to work for organizations dedicated to racial, gender and economic justice, specifically in support of women entrepreneurs and Portland’s Black community. She served as the director of investor relations at Xcelerate and the chief operations officer at Albina Vision Trust.

When she’s not navigating the investment ecosystem, Judy loves to golf, travel, go whitewater rafting and study foreign languages.

She began contracting with Meyer in May 2018 to assist with a series of investment team projects relating to the regional investment portfolio (MRI). Six years later, she is excited to officially be part of the team!
