Wellesley has made me who I am today. Since birth, my psyche and perspectives have been lovingly shaped by Wellesley students, professors and alumnae. As a child, I found my spirit from my amazing Wellesley Aunt who led me to the College. As a student, I discovered my voice through lively dialogue with Wellesley classmates - at the dining table and in class. As a business leader, I have gained confidence guided by Wellesley mentors at work and through the Business Leadership Council. As a mother, I have developed wisdom and maintained sanity through Wellesley friends in local and online communities. Every step of my life's journey has been touched, supported and (sometimes) carried by Wellesley; whether it's going back to campus, spending time with friends or treasuring the lasting memories, this is the Wellesley Effect for me.
