Our Vision

The vision of the More than Money podcast is to create a conversation community that seeks to understand how we can use our values to inform how we engage with our work and invest our wealth.

Over the past decade, we have seen a sea change in how business is done-- from what employees expect from their employers to a much broader definition of what is a high performing investment.

Our show talks about these big issues-- responsibility, ethics, empowerment, inclusion, justice, faith, values.  We introduce our listeners to some of the most insightful and thoughtful and exciting people in the world of business-- in ways like no other business show.

Thank you for joining us.


Our Story

The inspiration for the More than Money podcast came from our host's association with the Kalmanovitz Initiative at Georgetown University where she is a Practioner Fellow and doctoral candidate studying the ethical issues related to work and wealth.

All this after one fateful elevator ride with the CEO of JPMorgan... that story later in the podcast.



This the team who is responsible for bringing you the More than Money podcast.



Founder & Host
Dawn is an investment banker with the heart of a teacher and scholar.  She is a veteran of Wall Street who studies what theology has to tell us about the nature of value of work and the responsibilities of wealth.  She created the More than Money podcast to bring these insights into a secular context so as to inspire and uplift the creativity of all of us who work in the world. In its inaugural season, the More than Money podcast has achieved a Top 20 iTunes Business podcast ranking and has been recognized by Causeartist.com as one of the “Top 15 Podcasts That Will Inspire You to Change the World.”
Currently, Ms. Carpenter is writing her doctoral dissertation, entitled An Integrated Theology of Work and Wealth, at Georgetown University where she serves as a Practitioner Fellow at the Kalmanovitz Initiative for the Study of Labor and the Working Poor.
Her nearly 25-year financial services career has included work with JP Morgan, PNC Financial Services, City First Bank of DC, the US Department of Treasury—CDFI Fund, and Alex. Brown & Sons. Using this experience, Dawn has served as a founding Advisory Board member to the School of Business and Economics at Catholic University of America, chairman of the Investment Committee and member of the Finance Committee of the Black and Indian Mission founded after the American Civil War by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, and as a co-chair of the Advisory Board of DC Habitat for Humanity.
Dawn has also served as a business and economics columnist for the online publication Catholic Stand and also as a contributing author writing on social doctrine for the Catholic international news agency Zenit, where her articles are distributed through Catholic publications around the world.  A catalog of over 20 of her articles can be found at her website, Why We Work.
Ms. Carpenter has previously earned a M.A. in systematic theology from the Notre Dame Graduate School of Theology at Christendom College, a M.P.M. in public finance from the University of Maryland, and a M.A./B.A. in political science from American University.

Art & Social Media Producer, Season 2
Casey is a member of Georgetown University's Class of 2018, studying Economics and Sociology.  She connected with More Than Money through Georgetown's Kalmanovitz Initiative for the Working Poor, and finds the podcast to be a perfect place to see intersections between her two majors of study.  She previously was a Kalmanovitz Labor-Capital Strategy fellow and was placed at the Laborer's International Union of North America (LIUNA) during the Summer of 2017.  Originally from the beautiful Kailua, Hawai`i, she loves the ocean and beach and can be found exploring the outdoors in her free time.  Casey is particularly passionate about the various crossroads of environmental, labor, and food justice, and is excited to see these all appear in her favorite More Than Money episodes!


Audio Producer, Season 1
Sonia is a member of Georgetown University’s Class of 2020 and was introduced to the show in her relationship with the University’s Kalmanovitz Initiative for the Study of Labor and the Working Poor.



Season 1 Brand Development
The Catholic University of America generously supported the initial efforts to conceptualize the show by allocating four students from its Masters of Science in Business Analysis Program for a Field Team Study to work with More than Money to develop its brand identity and initial show marketing. Special thanks to Maria Notarianni, Jeff Swierzbinski, Dylan Meagher and Michael Bush who have all now graduated and are off to work, with the understanding that Life is About More than Money.
