I really enjoy meeting other attorneys who have wrestled with similar public finance issues [at The Institute]. I always learn something new when serving on a panel and look forward to hearing from attendees about their experience with drafting disclosure policies and procedures.
Tell us something about yourself…
I was born in Vietnam but grew up in New York City. I started my public finance career at the New York City Law Department in its Municipal Finance Division, where I worked on municipal bond deals for the City and its related financing entities. My husband (who is also a lawyer) and I have been married for over ten years and together for over 20 years. We have a lovely 8-year daughter who is the joy of our lives. I love traveling and eating good food and have a long bucket list of places I would like to visit (when this pandemic is over).
What encouraged you to volunteer as a panelist for this year’s Institute?
I really enjoy meeting other attorneys who have wrestled with similar public finance issues. I always learn something new when serving on a panel and look forward to hearing from attendees about their experience with drafting disclosure policies and procedures. We’re looking forward to an interactive session with the attendees.
As the panel chair for the Small Session Discussion 1: Drafting Disclosure Policies and Procedures, what do you hope will be a key takeaway from the session?
I hope the session will provide attendees with practical tips and strategies that can be implemented to assist issuers and obligors with their disclosure obligations.
What are some sessions you are looking forward to attending this year at The Institute: Virtual 2021?
I’m looking forward to the Investor Considerations and Other Disclosure Trends, which will discuss COVID-19 disclosure, and Taxable Municipal Bonds – Documentation, Tax and Disclosure Issues sessions, which is especially pertinent as we continue to see an increase in taxable refundings.
