Being a Rockefeller, Becoming Myself By Eileen Rockefeller

Eileen Rockefeller is the youngest daughter of David and Peggy Rockefeller. And she’s the great-granddaughter of John D. Rockefeller.

Her new memoir is Being Rockefeller, Becoming Myself.

She’s the founding chair of the Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors and the Growald Family Fund.

Eileen talks about her experience growing up with the Rockefeller name, the big houses, the butlers and maids, the lavish parties, the limos and helicopters… and what that meant to other people…and what it meant to her.

She explains how personal relationships, not material goods,  are the building blocks of of strong, healthy families and communities.

Eileen has been interested in environmental issues since she was a school kid in New York…she did a project about the pollution along the Hudson River. Of course, she got to survey the situation, and take photos, from her family’s helicopter…

Today, she continues her work int he environmental field with an emphasis on raising awareness and slowing the process of global warming.
