This month, in partnership with AdventHealth for Women, we’re recognizing some of the women in our community who are selflessly giving to others while raising families, supporting their loved ones and/or building their careers.

What is your WHY?

I think my “why” revolves around inspiring and engaging individuals, whether they are the people I work with, the people in the community, the people on the boards I’m a part of, or the people I work with at AdventHealth. I aim to inspire them to live their best possible lives.

Have you drawn inspiration from other women? Tell us about someone who has inspired you?

I’m a part of a group called WISE Greater Orlando. It’s a group of women in sports and events in Central Florida, founded about three years ago. Its mission is to empower and inspire women in the business of sports and events. I have a degree in sports marketing, which was very male dominated, and I didn’t have those mentors back then or people to look up to. I find this group of women to be so inspiring and they’re doing it at home, they’re doing it at work, they’re helping women in the community. Women like Kay Stocz Miller who’s with Orlando Magic, Kay Rawlins with Orlando City, and Jennifer Lastik with Greater Orlando Sports; these are powerful women and good people making things happen in the community. I’m also inspired by Sara Blakey, the founder of Spanx. I love people, especially women, who have a unique idea, relentless in her pursuit because she knew what an impact it would have for women. And she does it all with grace and humor.

What are you most proud of?

There are so many things, but I think I’m most proud of the relationships that I’ve built over the years. I was born and raised in Central Florida, and I am a true Florida
native. My relationships when I was very young, all the way into new relationships with people I just met today, are special to me. I value what people bring to the table. My passions are sports, the arts and sports tourism. The relationships and partnerships I’ve built through Advent- Health with the Orlando Magic, Walt Disney World, NASCAR, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts give me a lot of pride. I love collaboration, creating and solving issues for the community and finding solutions where there’s a need and making things happen; that fills me. I am most proud of that work.
