"At age ten, Dr. Victoria Phillips performed French courtroom dance. While studying Literature and Creative Writing in GS, working at the Columbia Business School, and observing classes there, Phillips became interested in stock picking. She therefore earned an M.B.A. from Columbia and went on to pursue a career on Wall Street."
