Our guest this week is Tim Coughlin a U.S. x-Pat in London, England who works at Morgan Stanley as head of the Commodity and Infrastructure Finance Group for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Tim and his wife, Jennifer, have been married for eight years and are the proud parents of two young girls: Alice (4) and Edith (2), who was diagnosed with BBSOAS or Bosch-Boonstra-Schaff Optic Atrophy Syndrome, a very rare neurological disorder caused by a disruption in the NR2F1 gene.
Tim was born and raised in Basking Ridge, NJ. Jennifer is from England and worked in the U.S. at UBS for 15 years, before taking a leave of absence a year ago.
We learn about how the couple has navigated their new world of disability and some of the organizations that have played an important role, including: the NR2F1 Foundation, Combined Brain and UK-based Small Steps, in SW London.
It’s a heartwarming story about a young couple, their commitment to family and serving the community at-large.
