2. Why are you passionate about your commitment to United Way’s Community Investment Fund?
As a small business person myself, it’s hard to commit to the United Way in the traditional ways that many of us remember. Nevertheless, I am adamant about giving back to the community. Historically, we have done that by dedicating a portion of our services to pro-bono work for organizations in the community for which we have some emotional tie, or simply because they do good work and need help doing it. But until we became familiar with the Community Investment Fund, and United Way’s Small Business Partnership Program, we did very little direct, financial contributing. However, this is a tremendous way for us to do that and help make a difference right here at home.
3. What is something interesting or surprising that most people don’t know about you?
During a five-year period about 15-20 years ago, I ran five marathons.
4. What would your older self tell your younger self?
That’s a message that has to stay between my older self and my younger self.
5. Favorite quote?
“Be the best person you can be every day.”
