For a decade and a half Jenny covered finance, including hedge funds, private equity, Wall Street and regulation. She started off at Institutional Investor magazine, moved to the New York Post and then spent 10 at the New York Times where she had a column called “The Insider”. In 2008 she won a Gerald Loeb award for her coverage of Merrill Lynch leading up to the financial crisis. In 2012, she shifted from finance to education and learning, curious about why we know so little about something so important. Her work examines what it means to be human: how to learn, leverage technology for benefit and not harm and how to manage important relationships, from being a parent, or partner, to a teacher or boss. She is driven to find ways to thrive in a noisy, unpredictable and complicated world.
