Helane Morrison who started off as a journalist has over time proved herself to be of great capabilities. She is currently involved in government service. Not many can maintain and stand for their ethical integrity after a long time of working in different capacities. Always doing the right thing is a narrow path that many don’t choose to follow except for one Helane Morrison. Since the early years of the millennium, the business world particularly the finance sector, has undergone several setbacks and has spoiled its reputation. Helane however has managed to stay true to who she is despite all this. Her fight against corruption and zeal to protect those who are vulnerable has over the years and still is her best known trait. It is encouraging to know that there is one person who still of integrity especially after the financial crisis in 2007/2008 where the unethical behaviour in the financial sector was exposed.
After the malpractices in the financial sector were exposed, everyone is uncertain and weary to trust others, especially those operating in the financial sector. Americans especially have little trust or no faith at all in Wall Street with only twenty percent of them believing that their country’s economy is headed on the right path. This is a matter of concern especially because the presidential elections are around the corner. This is so according to Yale Hirsch’s theory of there being a direct correlation between the elections and its impact on stock markets and the economy. Despite the uncertainties, people are still investing due to the unavoidable financial necessities. Since the average investor is at high risk and quite vulnerable, some have resorted to educate themselves and familiarise with some expertise.
Having a great work and life balance and adding to the fact that she is committed to ensure that justice prevails, Helane Morrison is a great encouragement to the fact that there is hope in the financial sector. The government noticed her exceptional qualities and gave her a post as head of the San Francisco Office of the U.S SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) where she worked till 2007. She is currently the Managing Director Chief Compliance Officer and General Counsel of Hall Capital Partners LLC. Helane’s knowledge of the law has undeniably played a big role to ensure she is where she is currently as is seen in the website link http://www.hallcapital.com/team/corporate/helane-l-morrison.php. She studied journalism initially at Northwestern University before she earned a J.D in Law from the University of California, School of Law at Berkeley. She has worked as a court clerk at the U.S Supreme Court and Court of Appeals as well as done private practice at the Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Falk, Canady & Rabkin firm.
