Anne Wojcicki, Co-Founder and CEO of 23andMe, a personal genomics company 

Anne, commenting on a conflict with the FDA over approval for their product, remarked, "I feel like what helps me deal with this situation is how I saw my mom deal with everyday life. Big challenges are an accumulation of small challenges. My mom was a problem solver.”

The advice was likely meaningful for her two sisters as well- Susan Wojcicki serves as CEO of YouTube, and Janet Wojcicki is an Anthropologist and Epidemiologist based at UCSF.
