Jennifer thoroughly understands our capital markets and how regulation affects them. Her energy and creativity contribute to a broad range of Commission projects, including substantive contributions to Commission actions on money fund reform and broker-dealer rules. ”
Dr. Marietta-Westberg commented:
Working at the Commission has been an incredible experience which presented endless opportunities to learn. I am grateful for the opportunity to engage in economic analysis on a wide range of important issues for investors and the nation’s capital markets.
