1. Who are/were your role models for "giving back" to your community and how did they influence you?
My role model is my mother (Dorothy Henley). She served on several Boards and Chaired the Board of Directors for the American Red Cross for NWNC. She continues to volunteer in several capacities in the community and inspires me to do the same.

2. What issues impacting women & girls are you most passionate about? Do you have any personal connection to any of these issues?
While I support all programs that empower women and girls, I'm most passionate about educating girls and ensuring that necessary resources are available to help them reach their full potential. I believe in the quote “teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”  I would add that if you teach a woman to fish, not only will she have food for a lifetime, but she will also share this new skill with her family and friends and break an entire cycle of hunger.  

3. What would you tell other women and girls about The Women's Fund to encourage them to get involved?
Collectively, members and volunteers of The Women’s Fund uplift some of the most important work in our community.  Supporting The Women’s Fund translates into positive outcomes for everyone.  When you invest in women and girls, you invest in the entire community. 

4. Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I'm the Director of The Women's Fund of Winston-Salem.  I am a committee member for the Education Impact Council for the United Way of Forsyth Co, a Marketing committee member for the Echo Council, a Board member for The Association of Fundraising Professionals NC Triad Chapter, and a volunteer at Salem Academy. I love to travel, run, and spend time with my family.
