Dr. Marion Bergman and Stanley Bergman offer a moving reflection on their journey spanning over 50 years. They emphasize the power of steadfast support and collaboration in their personal and professional endeavors.

Marion and Stanley: More than 50 years ago, we met as students at The University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) in Johannesburg, South Africa. In those five decades, we finished our undergraduate education, married, left our home country for the United Kingdom, resettled in the United States, raised two sons, welcomed two terrific daughters-in-law and their families who in turn expanded our family with five grandchildren, and along the way built two satisfying professional careers. Navigating the paths of our lives was only possible through a strong allyship and partnership that encouraged and supported our individual and shared dreams.

When Passion Meets Purpose

Dr. Jumoke Adedoyin, Chief Clinical Officer of Affordable Care, inspires those who dare to defy expectations and carve their own paths with courage and conviction. Raised in Nigeria by a family that valued a strong work ethic and academic excellence, Dr. Jumoke Adedoyin’s journey has been anything but conventional. While her brother was encouraged to become a doctor, her father initially encouraged her to pursue a career in accounting, believing that it could serve multiple desires, namely to be a mother and find career success. But Jumoke was drawn to the sciences, with biology first capturing her attention. So, her divergence from familiar expectations began, marking the start of a unique path characterized by a focused pursuit of her passions.

Jumoke also had an interest in the arts and pursued her creativity, which complemented her fervor for the sciences. In dentistry, she found the perfect intersection of both worlds. The dental profession combined scientific expertise with artistic flair, allowing her to express multifaceted talents while making a tangible impact on people’s lives.

Picture a sprawling Midwestern farm, where the earth is as generous as the people tending to it - this is where the story of DeAnn McClain, Heartland Dental's COO, begins.

How Christine King Became the World’s First Female Semiconductor Company CEO

An uneducated, single mother at 20, Christine King climbed the tech ladder to become the world’s first female CEO of a semiconductor company. Now she’s sharing her hard-won lessons for personal and professional triumph in her own words.

Lesson 1

Without Skills or an Education, You Are Nowhere
We all make questionable decisions in our lives, and one of my earliest was deciding to marry a hippie. He looked great, played a mean guitar, and I just went for that. And then one day, my husband came home and said, “I got to go to California, this marriage thing’s not for me. It’s nothing personal against you. Bye-bye,” and he was gone, leaving me with an 18-month-old son in a run-down trailer park and almost no money.
