When Elaine Ubakanma immigrated from Jamaica to the U.S., she was a little over 16, and her father abandoned her less than three months after she arrived. Years later, in 1989, she got a job with H.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It’s the kind of question Ellen Ochoa has heard more times than she can count, from fans, press and peers alike: When you first flew into space, saw the earth looming like a huge swirling marble below, more removed from life than you’d ever been before, what did you think about? Those expecting some stirring […]

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Growing up in Arvin, California, a modest town of 21,000 about 100 miles north of Los Angeles, Elia Quintana remembers driving past the hundreds of oil fields that dot the arid hills of nearby Bakersfield, their beams and heads bobbing like giraffes at a waterhole.

Halfway through her nursing training, back when she still had designs on entering the profession, Carmen Wakeling was called upon to administer to a patient whose daily regimen involved 16 different medications.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

His professional responsibility may be sustaining generational wealth, but that doesn’t curb Eric D. Bailey’s commitment to those not sharing in the prosperity.

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Plenty of wealth-management firms talk of fostering a family atmosphere—minus the occasional quarreling, of course. But for Mauricio and Eduardo Gruener, brothers and cofounders of the Miami-based GFG Capital, family is more than just fodder for a clever tagline. It’s how they do business. “Our work can be summarized as family first—one at a time,” […]

Amidst the cacophony of the national health insurance debate—over who pays what and how; and of when liability comes into play—one voice always seems drowned in the din: that of practitioners providing the care.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

“What else does one do with a psychology degree?” Edmon “Jake” Tomes playfully responds when asked how he came to found Level Four Wealth Management in Plano, Texas, back in 2000 at the seemingly green age of 26.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Tom Masthay doesn’t necessarily agree that the financial industry deserves the public’s suspicion, but can understand from where it comes.
