“After John received his degree, he joined DSV, a venture capital firm in Princeton, and when I had my third child, I stopped working, ... We loved Philadelphia and had a great old house in Center City, but we decided to give Princeton a try. At first, I was a bit confused after the move. I wasn't sure what to do.
