Who do you admire most in your life? Who is your hero?
One of the most admirable people I have come across was my Girl Scout leader. She managed to juggle a family and full-time job while serving as the head of six scouting levels involving at least 50 girls – well after her own daughters had completed the program.
What motivates you?
The desire for everyone to have a fighting chance in life. I am aware that I had a fortunate upbringing, but also know that so many are not as fortunate. Often difficult circumstances are out of the control of those they affect. My hope is to make even the smallest difference in one person’s life.
