If you assumed that petite LuAn Mitchell-Halter is a beauty queen, you'd be right. She's also been a meatpacker, one of the world's leading female entrepreneurs, and survived the loss of her husband all before turning forty. Image isn't everything. The Leading Women Entrepreneurs of the World have honored her since 2001, and she was this year's recipient of the McGill Management Achievement Award from Montreal's McGill University. Mitchell-Halter believes a unified, happy family is life's greatest achievement. She recently remarried and with her husband, Dr. Reese Halter, and their three children, live between their dream homes in Palm Springs, California, and Banff, Alberta.
