“I find the intersection of science and humanity at LAOH amazing. I am fascinated by what LAOH can do for children so they can move and compete; but it is what LAOH can do for children so they can play in the game their whole life that I find truly inspiring," said Dr. Hukill.
Dr. Hukill lives in Rancho Palos Verdes with her husband Jon Spain and their two children.
She retired last December from the money-management firm Aletheia Research & Management, Inc. and prior to joining Aletheia, she spent 32 years with First Union Securities, now Wells Fargo Advisors.

“If it wasn’t for LAOH, some kids would never walk again. It warms my heart to see patients getting the best possible care at LAOH,” said Roper.
Roper lives in Topanga and she has two children.
