Good Coffee and Nosh!
It takes courage to leave the known world for new frontiers. The panel members will share their experiences and open up the discussion to the audience so that we can all explore the journey of finding meaning in work and life.
Our panel, led by Dale Russakoff, who left her longtime job as a reporter at the Washington Post in 2008 to become a freelance writer, will consist of:
A public interest lawyer who represented low-income clients in the Bronx, Harlem and London, then chose to become a stay-at-home mom to her two daughters. She has begun to share her passion for social justice with her older daughter, Abigail, now 3, and together they volunteered with IHN for the first time in December.
A retired Wall Street executive with 40 years at Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs, Joan has since 2008 been an active investor in startups significantly owned by women through Golden Seeds, an angel investment group. She is currently managing partner of a $26 million Golden Seeds fund.
A licensed psychotherapist with 15 years in mental health fields who founded a New York City nonprofit to assist homeless, pregnant women and low-income families. A mother of two young sons, Ryder and Maxson, she is now creating and selling textile and fiber art.
A retired business executive who now pursues his twin passions for boating (and historic fireboats) and keeping Montclair economically and racially diverse. David is president of HomeCORP, which provides affordable housing to low-income families in Montclair.
