1. Who are/were your role models for "giving back" to your community and how did they influence you?
My parents. They give their time and resources tirelessly -- even now at age 81. I have watched them share with others my entire life.

2. What issues impacting women & girls are you most passionate about? Do you have any personal connection to any of these issues?
Domestic violence and teen pregnancy are the top issues. I have personal experience with both. I also am very keen on education for girls having always wished I had the opportunity to go to college as a young woman.

3. What would you tell other women and girls about The Women's Fund to encourage them to get involved?
Being connected to the Women's Fund gives me the feeling that I am contributing to an organization where everybody's donation is valued and leveraged. It feels good to be connected to a giving community.

4. Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I'm a truffle farmer in Stokes County and Executive Director of the North American Truffle Growers' Association (NATGA).  I also make all natural value-added truffle products for retail and wholesale and participated in the Cobblestone Market at Old Salem this past year. I volunteer at Brenner Children's Hospital and sponsor an annual truffle dinner fundraiser for the BackPack Program of Second Harvest Food Bank of NWNC. I have 2  sons and 3 grandchildren (2 girls and one boy). My parents live in Kernersville and I have a sister in Wake Forest, NC and one in Eldorado Hills, CA.
