Shanna was an assistant treasurer for the Bank of New York when the 9/11 attacks caused her to rethink her priorities and leave the world of finance to raise her two daughters. Nevertheless, she continued to hone her financial skills over the last 11 years as treasurer of her daughters’ PTA. Now that her daughters are both in college, Shanna wants a second chance at her finance career after 20 years away. But stigma surrounding her long absence and an evolved employment culture have made returning tricky. With career coaches and resources to help her along the path, as well as confronting the distressing reason she left all those years ago, Shanna hopes to reclaim her passion for finance and continue her career wherever that may take her.
