What do you remember as your favorite or most interesting IOP experience?

Meeting the many amazing public figures who came to the IOP, including Senior Advisory Committee members John F. Kennedy Jr. and Senator Ted Kennedy.

What was your first job out of college?

I went to UC Berkeley Law School right after Harvard, and my first job after graduating was as an attorney with the law firm Jones Day.

What was happening at the Institute when Jocelyn was a student? Here's a flashback:

Senator Ted Kennedy, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis​, Caroline Kennedy, and former Kennedy School Dean Al Carnesale in the Forum in May 1992
