For her, it was important for her work to align with her values. “I was raised by two hippie parents in a remote area of Alaska about 45 minutes from Fairbanks. They would have probably died at the time if they had been told I would end up in a career in finance,” Nystrom says. She graduated at the top of her high school class and then from her engineering class at the University of Virginia. Still, she says, “I was a first-generation college student with no idea about professional jobs in the real world.” Read the full Forbes article and watch the interview here: Check out my free webinar where I share the secrets of successful nonprofit crowdfunding at
