“I used to believe that success meant making other people happy. I now know I, too, have to be happy.”

Quote I draw inspiration from: “Tell me a fact, and I’ll learn. Tell me the truth, and I’ll believe. But tell me a story, and it will live in my heart forever.”

Philanthropic event I look forward to every year: Saban Community Clinic Annual Dinner Gala and Girls Inc Luncheon
