Two Wilmington women recently were appointed to state boards, according to an announcement from Gov. Roy Cooper.

Cooper appointed Katherine Woodbury as an at-large member to the North Carolina Council for Women.

Woodbury worked for Goldman Sachs for eight years as a currency options and emerging markets interest rates derivatives trader. She also previously served as COO and CFO of Kipp Memphis Collegiate Schools in Memphis, Tennessee.

The council, which has existed in one form or another since 1963, advises the governor, legislature and state departments on issues impacting women in North Carolina.
