One of my favorite things about my husband, Ben, is his desire to live an authentic life. This philosophy has led him to the decision to resign his position at Morgan Stanley and open his own investment firm, Dye Creek Capital, Inc., where he will provide employment opportunities to people living with intellectual and developmental disabilities. According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, an estimated 2.5 million people in the United States have an intellectual disability- approximately 1% of the United States population. Estimates also indicate that only 31% of individuals with intellectual disabilities are employed. Dye Creek Capital is determined to change those statistics.
I am so proud of Ben and so excited about this next chapter in our lives.
