UA-Pulaski Technical College Foundation 


What do you love most about what you do?

I’ve been lucky to work for organizations that focus on providing health care, access to education and overcoming hunger and poverty. I’m addicted to making life better for others.


What accomplishments are you most proud of?

I’ve had a successful career in business, but I’m most proud of having enough guts and talent to spend many years earning a living as a professional musician. Being in a band has really taught me about being a team leader and member in business, how to capitalize on my strengths and weaknesses. But remember, the singer always gets to pick the song’s key.


How can society adapt to better empower female professionals?

Let more of them be in charge, and they’ll show you how effective they are.
