Being True to Yourself
If you had known denice Torres early in her life, you might not have chosen her as
a future leader in life sciences. She grew up in the very blue-collar atmosphere of
Gary, Indiana, where steel mills and farms dominated the landscape. She has had
a number of careers, and came to this industry only after testing out a few others.
But her Polish mother and hispanic father were achievers at a time when their
ethnicity didn’t work in their favor, which is probably where denice got her grit
and determination, not to mention her intelligence and confidence.
