After being part of mass layoffs from Citigroup in 2009, Jacqueline finally slowed down her frenetic pace to reflect on where this next phase in her life would take her. She decided to pursue two of her dreams: to become an entrepreneur, and, after being urged by friends fascinated by her life story, to write her memoir. Ada's Daughter is that story.
