My mother is still my role model. She went back to college later in life and earned a PhD while raising six children. No one I have ever met quite matches my mother’s unique blend of intelligence, devotion to family and community, and perceptive guidance. Amazingly successful and yet supremely grounded and compassionate, my two daughters also truly represent the level to which hard-working, bright women can achieve. Kate is in medical school at Yale University and has authored ground-breaking research that benefits women dealing with drug addiction and poverty. Julie thrives as an international financial analyst at Goldman Sachs.
