Helane Morrison has always been someone I look up to in the business world. She is a true inspiration to anyone aspiring to have a successful career in business despite your age or gender. Quite frankly, to me Helane Morrison is an the living embodiment of the American dream.
Early in her life Helane had a true passion for writing. This passion led to her receiving a B.S. Degree in journalism from Northwestern University. Morrison quickly realized that she didn’t want to be a journalist her whole life and just like each one of us does when were unsure about she changed her mind.
Morrison would later and graduate from the University of California at Berkeley, School of Law where she earned her J.D. Though she had plenty of school obligations to tend to, Morrison still found time between her studies to work as editor-in-chief of the California Law Review. I couldn’t imagine juggling that much school work plus serve as the editor-in-chief of of the California Law Review.
In 1984 and 1985 Morrison worked for the Hon. Richard Posen of the US Court of Appeals for the Seventh District after passing the bar. Morrison worked as a law clerk for several more companies until she was promoted to partner while working for Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin law firm.
In 2007 Morrison joined the best investment company in the nation in my opinion. Though I might be a tad bias since I’m a woman. With all seriousness, Hall Capital Partners is one of the most revolutionary investment companies in the state of California. On top of that the entire company is run completely by women. Now you see what I meant when I said I might be a tad bias because I’m a woman. As a woman I am extremely proud of how successful the company is.
Helane Morrison is truly a special person. Her unbreakable determination to achieve her goals is something I admire deeply. Additionally, Helane is someone who stands for something. Her pure passion for justice and core set of values make her more than just a top notch businesswoman. They also make her a remarkable human being in my eyes.
