Showering felt too indulgent, too superficial. Do I put on my earrings or leave them off? Should I bother with my hair? Then I…

A Place for Families at HBS

My husband, our 2-year-old daughter and I moved from San Francisco to Boston in December 2000.

Cross-Registering Across the River

I never intended to cross-register at Harvard’s Business School. As a high school teacher in Wisconsin, I never even intended to attend Harvard. I only applied to goad a former student and graduating senior into applying to Harvard’s undergraduate program. He wouldn’t hear of it. Wisconsin was too removed from Harvard-the great and daunting icon…

Duke Wins!

Upon becoming Section NI’s Harbus rep, I decided that I would introduce every member of the section before taking a second look at anyone I’d already introduced. When I made that commitment to myself, I couldn’t know how difficult it would be to stick to it. I couldn’t know, for example, that Toni Pelaez (of…

From the co-chairs' corner

It was the best of times; it was the worst of times. So began our wonderful and hellish experience as Co-Chairs of the largest High Tech “Trek” sponsored by Harvard Business School.
