Who are your heroes?
Bill Gates. Super successful, didn’t follow the traditional path, was generous from the beginning with his money. I’m a part of Rotary International. He’s given almost $2 billion to the polio campaign.
You can’t fix stupid. LOL, that’s a fun one. When in doubt, do the right thing every single time. Just do the right thing, and it will work out. I tell my team this all the time. (Sunshine PHA recently won just won a Torch Award for Business Ethics).
Something you can’t live without?
My faith. At the end of the day, I’m serving God, not the rest of the world.
Your most defining moment?
When my mom died in 1998. It was the hardest day of my life, but it was also the day I grew up because I didn’t have that support system. We talked almost every day, so it was incredibly challenging.
How would your friends describe you?
Driven and giving.
What are you doing when you’re not being Superwoman?
Yoga. I used to love to shop, but during the recession, I got turned on to thrifting. I’m a huge thrifter. Almost every single piece of clothing that I own, I found in a thrift store. I have a little nonprofit called Thriftinista. We find great deals at thrift stores, share tips and organize thrifting bus trips to benefit other nonprofits.
