As the daughter of an Army Brigadier General, Kimberly Cantor lived in twelve states prior to attending college. This upbringing inspired Kimberly to return to school, and she is currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology at Columbia University’s Teachers College, concurrent with undergraduate studies at Columbia University that fulfill pre-requisite courses.
This degree demonstrates a great shift in focus for Kimberly, who previously spent 17 years in investment banking, with roles that included Director in Infrastructure Investment within Citigroup’s Municipal Bond department and Co-Manager at JPMorgan’s Municipal Securities Transportation Practice. Kimberly also served on JPMorgan’s Quantitative Counsel and developed both the Privatization of Military Housing and Public Broadcasting specialties.
After retiring from banking, Kimberly taught a senior level course in Infrastructure Finance as an Adjunct Professor at NYU Tandon School of Engineering.
Kimberly serves on the Pediatric Council for the Hospital of Special Surgery in NYC and the Leadership Council for Tina’s Wish, an organization that funds groundbreaking research for the early detection and prevention of ovarian cancer. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from the University of Texas, Austin, and lives in Manhattan with her husband and three children.
