1. Who are/were your role models for "giving back" to your community and how did they influence you?
Donna Smart was critical to my awareness and involvement of the Women's Fund and her support has been critical to my involvement. I have many role models that have influenced my involvement but I must say that the support of my company, Wells Fargo, to be involved in our communities makes it always be a top priority.

2. What issues impacting women & girls are you most passionate about? Do you have any personal connection to any of these issues?
I am most passionate about women and girls having the education to know what choices they have and understand the impact of their choices. I believe this is the only way that a woman can be dependent on themselves and eventually give back to their communities. I also feel that being able to manage your finances is a way to avoid unnecessary setbacks, be independent and support dreams coming true.

3. What would you tell other women and girls about The Women's Fund to encourage them to get involved?
The more women we can reach with education and support in making life choices and understanding the impacts of those choices, the less we need to invest in helping women that have made bad choices.

4. Tell us a little bit about yourself: 
I am very fortunate to have a job I love with a great company. I work with people and technology to help our businesses excel. I have volunteered in my community on environmental task forces to help educate how to protect our water and land. My husband and I are dedicated to animal rescue and rescue Irish Setters and a few kitty cats along the way. I am an avid gardener and love to spend the summer weekends at Smith Mountain Lake with friends and family.
