Before Bloomberg, Smith was the Director of Institutional Sales and Trading at Terra Nova Institutional where she handled investment management and hedge fund accounts.

Prior to this, she was a trader at Hermitage Capital, where she executed U.S. equities and options orders, conducted portfolio analysis, prepared commission reports and serviced clients. A graduate of Louisiana State University, Smith began her career as a research associate at Aegis Capital. There, she assisted in the research and analysis of retail stocks, prepared weekly stock newsletters to clients and identified investment opportunities.
