8 Leaders in Westchester Who Are Changing the Way We Live

Meet the eight Westchesterites who are changing the way we live today by advancing the fields of psychiatry, technology, education, business, and more.



It’s strange to think, but at some point, we had to figure out how to treat common infections, get information around the world quickly, and mechanize our economy. We couldn’t imagine what life would be like if we hadn’t, but that doesn’t mean we no longer have challenges—in fact we may have more than we ever did. Fortunately, Westchester has enough brains to come up with overlooked-but-elegant solutions. From using the Internet to create new modes of finance to figuring out how to save our environment, Westchesterites are looking at our biggest issues and, hopefully, will alter the way we live for the better. They’re impacting Westchester, New York, the USA, and the whole world. These are the 2013 Game Changers.
