In recounting significant events in her life Joan Payden showed how there was something to learn from each one. Who would have known that being one of three hundred employees let go from an oil firm where she was a chemical engineer would lead her to discover the exciting and challenging world of bonds and investments. Students from the FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) had the opportunity to speak with Joan, and more exiting that that: she invited them to come to lunch and have a tour of Payden & Rygel. This will give them the opportunity to learn more about what Payden & Rygel does. Joan is not only an inspirational leader herself, but she inspires others to learn also. We are so happy to have her as a friend and benefactor of Ramona - another Remarkable Woman to add to our wall of honor.
