1. What advice that you would you give to current Leadership Charlotte participants?
Take an active role in the experience. Don’t be afraid to voice your thoughts or opinions even if you think others may disagree.
2. What do you remember most vividly from your Leadership Charlotte experience and why?
Definitely Opening Weekend. So many good memories from riding up to Blowing Rock with four strangers, much needed drinks after the ropes course and time around the bonfire.
3. What are you doing in the community these days?
I serve on three non-profit boards. BBB® of Central and Northwest North Carolina, The Martin Truex, Jr. Foundation and The Ballantyne Ball.
4. How has your life after Leadership Charlotte surprised you and why?
I made a 180 mid-career change. I’d been in sales for most of my professional life and decided, after LC that I wanted to go into Community Relations.
