Melissa Fensterstock ‘98 returned to the school to share her experiences in entrepreneurship at an after school meeting, where her determination and courage inspired the Women in Business (WIB) Club.

After graduating the school, Fensterstock studied neuroscience at Johns Hopkins University to become a doctor and later developed an interest in business. She attended a dual degree program at the University of Cambridge to study both business and biotechnology, then furthered her education at Harvard Business School, co-President of the WIB Club Noah Goldberg (11) said.

Her journey through finding where she is today was inspirational because she didn’t give up and continued to go to school, co-President of the WIB Club Iliana Dezelic (11) said. “She went through a lot of business ventures to get to where she is now.”

Fensterstock is now the founder of Landsdowne Labs, a medtech company currently working on two medtech advances using research from Harvard and MIT labs, Goldberg said.

She emphasized the importance of living in the moment, because being grateful for what you have in the present improves your own success, co-President of the WIB Club Nicole Warszawski (11) said. “Throughout her career she has explored so much. I thought that was really inspirational.”
