In Chapter 18 of 19 in his 2011 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, husband and charter school executive Andrew Epstein shares advice on how to best support a spouse during a period of extended family illness. Presence matters most, so he begins by prioritizing family first. He finds combining strength with an occasional joke to keep people laughing to be a good mix through the experience. Epstein is currently Senior Director for Finance at Democracy Prep Public Schools in New York City. Previously, he was a finance executive at Universal Music Group's Island Def Jam Records and, previous to that, a schoolteacher in the Teach for America Corps program. He holds a BA from the University of Michigan and an MBA from Columbia Business School.
