Ms. Mockler is married and the mother of four children. She resides in Westchester County, New York. Ms. Young, also married and a mother of three, resides in Fairfield County, Connecticut. Their company, Flexible Resources, Inc, has offices in Stamford and Hartford, Connecticut, and in Fairfield, New Jersey.
