Read the citation for her degree below:

Exceptional leaders imbue organizations with values that transcend the bottom line. By that measure, as well as any other we could devise, Dr. Moose, you are outstanding.

After graduating from Wheaton summa cum laude, you earned a doctorate in economics from Harvard and began your career as a business consultant. When you joined The Boston Consulting Group, very few women worked in the field of management consulting. That did not daunt you. Indeed, you rose to the position of senior vice president and director of the firm and now continue as a senior advisor. Today, you also head your own consulting firm, and have served as director to other corporations. Your success has served as inspiration to many other women executives; your willingness to mentor others typifies your generosity.

In addition to mentoring, you also share your expertise with many educational and cultural organizations, including your alma mater. You served on Wheaton’s Board of Trustees during a pivotal phase in the college’s recent history. Your generosity also found expression in the establishment of the Ohrn Family Scholarship Fund, which honors your parents, and the Henrietta Jennings Endowed Professorship, which honors one of your Wheaton professors.

Your pioneering spirit and generosity have opened doors for many women and men. Wheaton salutes your accomplishments and your conviction. It is with great admiration and appreciation that we bestow upon you the degree: Honorary Doctor of Letters.
