Now that she’s a portfolio manager, she’d love to transition into work where she more directly helps women achieve financial wealth and success. She’s had to deal with the perception that strong, successful women just “aren’t marriage material” – but fortunately found someone who appreciates her success, rather than being intimidated by it.
