In this episode, we talk about Feygele’s job at the foundation and how a repeal of the Affordable Care Act might affect them, particularly because she and the organization focus on policy. We also talk about her beautiful mother, and how her mother influenced Feygele’s decision to go back to school. There’s also the beautiful love story of how Feygele’s mother and father met when they tried to return to their homes after the Holocaust. It’s a great story, and you know I’m a sucker for love.
This is a great episode for advocates, folks going back to school, boss notable woman, and anyone who loves a good story.
