Co-Founder of Impact100 Louisville (KY), without doubt, for a resume, the most important thing I’ve done except being the mother of three great adult children, one of whom is the co in co-founder of Impact and without whom it would never have materialized. These same children have blessed me with seven ‘grands’. I have worked as a high school teacher, in marketing at a large company (Humana), the Executive Director of Louisville’s Main Street Association, and founded the Spanish School of KY (for adults). I thought I was retired until I learned of Impact100 and life has never been fuller.
