Angel, a native of Sacramento, California, is a graduate of the University of California, Los Angeles.  At UCLA, she was a Resident Assistant and her residents included many members of the renowned football and basketball teams.  After graduation, she returned to her hometown and soon landed a role as a Placement Counselor for an Adult Education Center, and was quickly promoted to Executive Director.  This was her first experience coaching and connecting adults to career opportunities.  Following that assignment, Angel joined The Robert Toigo Foundation as the Program Coordinator, the second full time professional of the Foundation shortly after it’s founding to support diverse professionals pursuing their MBA degree and an investment career. Once again, she was quickly promoted to Executive Director, with the responsibilities of recruiting prospective “Fellows,” securing their summer MBA internships and then coaching and placing these smart young professionals into career opportunities.  She also worked with the Toigo board for fundraising and she recruited and assigned mentors.  After many years with Toigo and many business trips to NYC, Angel was recruited into Morgan Stanley in NYC as the Vice President of Diversity. Subsequently, she joined Goldman Sachs as a Vice President of Human Capital Management for Investment Banking and Private Equity recruiting, though not specifically responsible for diversity recruiting.  Of course, the organization knew Angel from Toigo and knew that she would conduct general recruiting from a diversity perspective. And she did. 


Following Goldman, Angel led recruiting for the relaunch of the International Division of New York Life, initially as a Consultant but was soon convinced to join the firm full-time.  Again, the role was not a diversity recruiting role, however, the hiring of brilliant professionals who happened to be from diverse backgrounds increased significantly and globally, and she received an Outstanding Performance Award.  At the same time, Angel accepted an Adjunct (part time) Advisor role with the Haas School of Business to advise and facilitate graduate students seeking a career on Wall Street. 


Angel always remained very close to Toigo — both the alumni and management— so much so that, in 2011, the President of Toigo asked her to consider returning to the organization.  The finance industry was aggressively seeking to access experienced professionals from diverse perspectives both within and beyond the Toigo population and Angel had (and has!) these relationships.  She returned to Toigo as the Director of Talent Management and the organization launched a very successful executive search offering. 


In 2022, after 20+ years of doing what Angel does uniquely and exquisitely: match outstanding organizations to brilliant talent who happen to be from diverse backgrounds McCain Stewart was launched. Angel remains connected to the Toigo organization as an independent consultant, and she is forever part of the Toigo ‘Family’. 


Angel is bi-coastal, spending most of her time in New York City but still an active member of the Sacramento community.  She is the Director of Mentoring Black Sisters/The Miss Black Sacramento Scholarship Pageant, a well known non profit mentoring organization founded by her grandmother in 1970.
