EP 35 - Haena Park | A Public Failure, A Prison Stint & Chance For Healing

In this episode

This week's episode of Next With Novo features the incredible life story of Haena Park. Now a Learning and Impact Officer at Galaxy Gives. Haena began her career as a highly ambitious trader on Wall Street before receiving a federal indictment, a prison sentence, and ultimately being given a second chance and dedicating her life to giving back.

We discuss her upbringing as a Korean immigrant and how that culture informed so much of her story. Haena speaks to her early success attending Harvard before working at Morgan Stanley Goldman Sachs and later in global macro portfolio management at Fortress Investment Group.

Haena details what led to her federal indictment, time in prison, and her experience within the system. A truly singular story you have to hear to believe.

And finally, Haena opens up about her personal story of childhood trauma and how that experience, and many others, led to her second chance and a life dedicated to healing and paying it forward.
