Alpha Woman’s interview with Lisa Hannah, President and CFO of Cultivating Wellness got underway just as an internet outage in her town in Northern California was in full swing. True to the Alpha Woman she is, Lisa persevered and we proceeded with the interview.
I started in a boutique investment firm in San Francisco in the client services department where I worked with the senior portfolio managers. It was a great place to cut my teeth because it was still old school Wall Street where they were more like the Warren Buffett type of value investors. I had wonderful mentors and they treated me very well. It was the period just before tech took off and data collection, storing and analysis was all pretty much manually done at that point.
