Jamie Brooke Forseth has held leadership roles across U.S. public finance, defense, and diplomacy.  Today she is head of research and business strategy at Tower Bay Asset Management, an alternative asset manager specializing in the $4 trillion U.S. municipal bond market.

She previously served as the director of global strategy and senior advisor to the Secretary of the Air Force at the Pentagon and the Ambassador’s personal chief of staff at the U.S. Embassy in Finland.

A native Arizonan, Forseth danced at Ballet Arizona while a student at Arizona School for the Arts. She went on to earn five degrees in five years from Arizona State University (bachelor’s degrees in violin performance, political science, English literature, and integrated Polish studies as well as a Master’s degree in political theory). She also holds an MBA from the Yale School of Management. She has performed solo violin for a U.S. President, Secretary of State, and Supreme Court Justice, but today is most at ease in the audience of performing arts organizations like Ballet Arizona.
