Where she hopes to be in the next few years: In the next five years, I plan to assist the nonprofits in Orange County through my foundation work and volunteering. When my children are off to college, it would be great to ramp up my work-life again. Following my passion to make a difference, it would be meaningful to help run a foundation or nonprofit organization in Orange County.
