Previously, she was a management consultant at McKinsey, an investment banker at Salomon Brothers, and a senior executive responsible for business development at Physicians’ Online and Children’s Television Workshop. A passionate advocate for education, Edith has served in board/advisory roles at Stand for Children, the Educational Alliance, Save the Children, and Portland Jewish Academy.
