Position at UWGT: Vice President of Marketing and Communications
Number of years at United Way: 1Â years
One sentence on why you give to UW.: I give because I’ve come so close to being one of those In need before so I chose United Way as my way to pay it forward.
Hobby(ies): Golf, time at the seashore, reading, reality TV, motivational language speaking engagements
# 1 item on your Bucket List : It used to be para-sailing until I broke my hip. Now it’s zip lining. That ties with my other #1 which is to meet news reporter Christiane Amanpour.
Favorite TV/web show(s): All of those crazy reality TV shows. Survivor is still my #1 favorite.
Last movie you saw and liked: Slumdog Millionaire very powerful. My fav chick flick is While You Were Sleeping.
Best book ever: Besides the Bible, I’d say Orbiting the Giant Hairball.
If you had one do-over in life, you would: make my kids sign a contract that they would always kiss their Mom and spend time with their Mom no matter how old and how busy they got.
People read me because I am a pop culture diva, a survivor and thriver of single Mother/Grandmother-hood and the biggest cheerleader for education as a solution to most problems.
