Stern Somebody Presents: Jeanna Smialek

Running between the Classroom and the Newsroom

Jeanna Smialek is a part-time Stern student and a full-time Federal Reserve and Economics Reporter for the New York Times. In between balancing school, articles and her upcoming book, she made time to sit down with The Oppy for an interview.

As the nation waited in limbo for election results last Friday, I had the refreshing distraction of sitting down, virtually, with Ilana Fischer, CEO of Whisps and Stern MBA (2011). Ilana spoke about leadership lessons she’s learned during her career and how her life-long passion for cheese ultimately led to her dream job.

This interview has been edited for clarity and length.

The Utah native has been quarantining in France for the past couple of months, but will be returning to NYC to vote in the next few weeks.
