Abstract
Bertrand's memoir chronicles the experiences of a working single mother on a mission to thrive in her chosen field, both personally and professionally, despite the odds. She was raised in the 1950s by a free-thinking single mother who designed airplane wings for a living and collected folk art from around the world .A licensed architect, Bertrand received her degrees from UC Berkeley in 1971 and in 1972, a time when only 3 percent of architects were female. She retired in 1994 and spends her time weaving rugs and writing.
