Backstory Behind Stephanie and Guest

The story of how I became to know and love the Bernsteins is story of meaningful and intentional networking. A friend was going to a networking event at the City Club in downtown Los Angeles. One of her friends could not bring his wife and together they looked through their friends to pick someone to invite. My name was picked. I attended the event and met Dennis and Lucy for the first time and made a new friend, (George) he was the one who suggested I get the invite. That night I learned about Dennis’s business leadership skills and Lucy’s jewelry making skills. I felt and appreciated both of their abilities to be present in a conversation. Even with out knowing about their family I sensed Lucy’s abundant connection to mother earth and all things mothering. Since the initial meeting, I have met with Dennis several time for life and career conversations. His practical advice, attention to both facts and feelings and great story-telling are always exactly what I need and energy-giving. I got to experience Lucy’s heart and storytelling abilities when she and her daughter, Mahalah came to Pubic Shared Experience event. I have so much love for this family and look forward to seeing the evolution of future generations of Bernsteins. – Stephanie Michele
