What inspires you?
My children – my son Jimmy who, in his too short life, fought brain cancer for eight years, got admitted to Stanford, raised over $250,000 for LIVESTRONG and inspired so many with his quiet courage; and my daughter Molly who isn’t afraid to raise her voice on behalf of others, who doesn’t gives up on her dreams and who sees walls as an opportunity to show the world how much she wants something

How do you think other people describe you?
Empathetic, organized, interested in other people, willing to take chances

You find a lottery ticket that ends up winning $10 million. What would you do?
Work with Children’s Cancer Association to create an endowment fund to pay for the uncovered medical expenses of families whose children are fighting cancer. The fund would enable parents to take a leave or quit their jobs to be with their ill children, rather than force them to continue working in order to have health insurance. It would also ensure that when a child has finished treatment and/or passed away, families aren’t left in debt because of uncovered medical expenses.

Regina Ellis, founder & CEO of Children’s Cancer Association

What charity(s) are you involved with?
Children’s Cancer Association; Bread of Life; Rotary Club of Sacramento

An organized, active network of women of all ages and professions who help, support, mentor and inspire each other (thank you, for creating exactly that!)
