Guest Speaker:
A born and bred New Yorker, Jill Kopelman Kargman, age 44 (yes, she embraces her real age), is not afraid to dish about life on the Upper East Side. Kargman’s bestselling books include The Ex-Mrs. Hedgefund, Sometimes I Feel Like a Nut and Momzillas. Her work has appeared in Vogue, ELLE, Harper's Bazaar, GQ, Condé Nast Traveler, Departures and Allure, and she has written for several MTV shows. Her Bravo series, Odd Mom Out, focused on Jill playing a fictionalized version of herself.
