1. Who are/were your role models for "giving back" to your community and how did they influence you?
I don't have one, individual role model. Instead, it was the women of my freshman hall in college who taught me the importance of community engagement. Several of my freshman friends were instrumental in establishing the Volunteer Service Corps at Wake Forest and, as a result, getting me involved in several volunteer opportunities within the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County community. Because of their leadership and the "Pro Humanitate" education that I received at Wake, I appreciate the importance--to the community, to myself and to those coming behind me--of being fully engaged in the community.

2. What issues impacting women & girls are you most passionate about? Do you have any personal connection to any of these issues?
Education and self-esteem.

3. What would you tell other women and girls about The Women's Fund to encourage them to get involved?
It is an organization that is working hard to make real and lasting changes in the lives of women and girls. As a result of these changes, our entire community will benefit.

4. Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I am a partner with Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton where I practice in the litigation group. I have two young children. With work, my community activities and chasing children, I don't have a lot of free time. However, when I do have some free time, I enjoy working in my garden.
